Gabriel's Message

The angel Gabriel from heaven came 
His wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flame
"All hail", said he, "thou lowly maiden Mary
Most highly favoured lady"

For known a blessed Mother thou shalt be
all generations laud and honour thee
Thy son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold
Most highly favoured lady

Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her heard,
"To me be as it pleaseth God", she said, 
'My soul shall laud and magnify His holy name"
Most highly favoured lady

Of her, Emmanuel the Christ, was born
In Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn 
And everyone throughout the world will ever say 
Most highly favoured lady
