Let Us Be Mary

Let Us Be Mary on Christmas Morn

Light will shine in the darkness.
Thread will mend what is torn.
This Love lies waiting to be reborn.
Come let us be Mary on Christmas morn.
Let us be Mary for now is Christmas morn.

1. Sorrow is present among us.
Many have burdens to bear.
Christmas brings no easy answers.
Rather the presence we share.

2. May we ignore the self doubting.
May we bring mercy to bear.
Where someone’s pregnant with justice:
Christmas is soon to be there.

3. We the not noteworthy people
With un-award-wining lives:
We are the angels of glory.
We are the busy midwives.
Based on a quote from Meister Eckhart, paraphrasing: what good is it to me if Mary gave birth to God two thousand years ago, if I don’t also do so in my own time?
