Gabriel's Song

lyrics

Greetings to you favored one!
You will be with child and bear a son
The lord is with you— but do not fear!

The holy spirit will fall on you
His pow’r will overshadow you
your child Will be-ee — the son of God

And he will be called the son of the most high
The Lord will give him the throne of david
And he will reign over jacob’s house
his kingdom will never end

Mary God has chosen to
Show his favor and love to you
The hope of the earth – to you is born

Nothing is impossible
For the Lord God of Israel
The light of the world — he lives in you
