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,"

"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,"

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!

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!

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
