Gabriel's Message Lyrics

by Sting

The angel Gabriel from Heaven came
His wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flame
"All hail", said he, "Thou lowly maiden Mary"
Most highly favored lady, Gloria

"For known a blessed mother thou shalt be
All generations laud and honor thee
Thy Son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold
Most highly favored lady," Gloria

Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head
"To me be as it pleaseth God" she said
My soul shall laud and magnify his holy name
Most highly favored lady, Gloria, Gloria
