Gabriel’s Message

Lyrics

(Basque folk carol)

1. 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 favored lady; gloria.

2. For know a blessed mother thou shalt be
All generations laud and honor thee
Thy Son shall be Emmanuel as seers foretold
Most highly favored lady; gloria.

3. The 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 favored lady; gloria.

4. Of her Emmanuel, the Christ was born
In Bethlehem all on a Christmas morn
And everyone through out the world will ever say
Most highly favored lady; gloria.
