Monday WRites 88

Joseph Mulamba-Mandangi, Nativity, 2001

“I am the handmaid of the Lord,” Luke 1:38

If you pause a while,
I’ll tell you a story,
Of the world’s greatest mother;

Conceived with child,
Only for heaven’s glory,
Espoused of God, the father;

“Yes,” without guile
Replied our Mary
Gentle maid, she won God’s favour;

Her faithful style,
We, daily remember,
And sing ave, ave, ave; of her.
AVE AVE AVE 2004 gillena cox
