Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you all have a good, safe and blessed holiday. I wrote the song, “Mary’s Gift” in honor of the gift of Jesus that Mary gave to the world through her faith and trust in God. You may Listen on Spotify or buy it from my store.
Mary had these words to say as recorded in The Canticle of Mary, the Magnificat, from Luke 1:46-55:
My soul magnifies the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior;
Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid;
For behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed;
Because He who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is His name;
And His mercy is from generation to generation
on those who fear Him.
He has shown might with His arm,
He has scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
and has exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He has sent away empty.
He has given help to Israel, his servant, mindful of His mercy
Even as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity forever.
