So Mary answered, “Here am I,
The servant of the Lord.”
She knew that she could well rely
Upon the angel’s word.
There’s not a blessing we won’t know
If God is pleased to share;
As Mary found out long ago,
We’re ever in God’s care.
O God, what awesome things you do;
You call, surprise and bless!
As Mary answered, may we, too,
Respond by saying, “Yes!”
