105
A virgin sure of mind most pure
And holy life was she ; With those words sweet he did her greet,
All hail, Mary, quoth he.
To save us all, &c. Thou that art highly in esteem,
Know this and understand, Thou shalt conceive and bear a Son,
Redemption is at hand. Be not afraid, thou beauteous maid,
Nor doubt how this can be; The Holy Ghost with power most
Shall overshadow thee.
To save us all, &c. The blessed Mary did believe,
And then these words spake she, Behold the handmaid of the Lord,
So be it unto me. And at the last it came to pass,
Her time being fully come, Within a stable she brought forth
Her first begotten Son.
To save us all, &c. And now let neighbours all rejoice
Together when they meet, Let's praise the Lord with heart and voice,
WTith love each other greet.
