Gabriel's Message - Sting



The Angel Gabriel from Heaven came
His wings as drifted snow
His eyes as flame
"All Hail!" said he, "Thou Holy Maiden Mary,"
"Most Highly Favoured Lady,"
Gloria!

"For know a Blessed Mother thou shalt be,
All generations laud and honour thee
Thy Son shall be Immanuel, by seers foretold
Most highly favoured Lady,"
Gloria!

Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head;
"To me, be as it pleaseth God," she said.
My soul shall laud and magnify His holy Name
Most highly favoured Lady!
Gloria!

Of her Immanuel, the Christ was born,
In Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn.
And everyone throughout the world forever saved,
Most highly favoured lady!
Gloria!

I love this song and was going to include it in my poll, but didn't know if anyone was familiar with it. I actually have this version of it since it is on the same CD as Bob Seger's Little Drummer Boy and Whitney Houston does a decent job with Do You Hear What I Hear (A Very Special Christmas CD)

Oh, and I tagged you for a rosary meme.

I too love this song. I considered posting it yesterday, but I changed my mind because it creeps my kids out. They said "who is that scary man?" Look he's trying to grab children. I said - "It's Satan , he always tries to ruin everything." So now my youngest children think that Sting is Satan. ROFL
