Song of the Week - #34 - "Mary's Song"
Christmas is amazing! Astounding! What a wonder that God would come to earth through a lowly virgin girl to bring the world His salvation! This song focuses on how Mary, though receiving the most startling news anyone could receive, responded with trust, surrender and worship. What an example to us of trusting God when we can’t begin to fathom the implications. May our words and lives say like Mary’s did - May Your will be done in my life; may the love and grace of Jesus, that now lives in me, flow through me. “My soul magnifies the Lord!”
A special thank you to Samantha Chaffin on cello, Rebecca Schubert for singing background vocals. Thank you to Carlos Gallardo-Candia for background vocals, guitar, and producing Song of the Week. And to my daughter Eileen for singing one more Song of the Week with me this year.
Luke 1:38 NIV “‘I am the Lord’s servant,’ Mary answered. ‘May it be to me as you have said.’”
Luke 1:46-50 ESV “And Mary said, ‘My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. And his mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation.”
