Mary's Song

Mary's Song

The Christmas journey in a 21st century setting. Mary’s Magnificat performed as a spoken word poem and a song.

After Mary was visited by the angel there’s a poetic prayer in Luke chapter 1 which is an overflow of Mary’s heart. Mary’s words are a celebration of the ever-faithful God. Mary declares these words with a knowingness that she was going to give birth to the greatest gift. In this video Cath Wooldridge performs Mary’s Magnificat through a spoken word poem and song.

If you’d like to perform Mary’s song live you can download the chord chart from the Spoken Truth website.

A few years ago Dai Wooldridge from Spoken Truth created a spoken word poem telling the other side of the story as Jesus’ step father Joseph came to terms with the birth of Jesus. That video can be watched and purchased from Spoken Truth here.

Transcript

Everything I am is lifting up everything you are God –
I’m elated, and I celebrate you Saviour

Who am I?
You clock me.
You notice and spot me.
The mighty one who’s done
Great things for me
Who’s shown his mercy,
And so I’m going to be
Called – blessed.

Blessed by you -
God spelt ‘Holy’.

Your mercy
God, it’s in arms reach
For all who fear you
Who know you
And show you
All the honour that’s owing you.

We’re blessed by you God spelt ‘justice’.
You’ve put the proud in their place
And Performed great deeds
Humbled rulers
And given to those in need,
You’ve put on banquets for the hungry
And filled their plates with plenty
And it’s the rich plates of plenty, that you leave - empty.

Your servant Israel -
You’ve helped us
And remembered us
You dish out big portions of mercy upon us.

It started back with Abraham
And you’re still doing it,
and you always will

Verse 1
Who am I, a humble servant girl? Who am I, that you would favour me? Though I was young and so afraid, You have brought me peace Who am I that you would love me?

Verse 2
Who am I that you would look on me? What have I to offer unto thee? Though I was lowly, frail and more, You gave heaven to the poor Who am I, mother Mary

Chorus
I am blessed By heaven overshadowed Life will never be the same again I am blessed To bear the Father’s mercy The Son of the almighty here with me

Bridge
Your promise held through generations Your plan to rescue here at last You remembered Israel Your people, You have made heirs

The heart behind ‘Spoken Truth’ is simple. To ‘speak’ what I believe to be ‘true’, and to speak it through the medium of ‘spoken word’.
