At church I volunteer as the children's pianist. They are learning a song "When Joseph went to Bethlehem," which the chorister has chosen because she likes the perspective on how Joseph participated. It made me think That is great, but where is the song about Mary? Of course there is the Lullaby-Baby type of songs, but what about her perspective and what she personally went through?
Mary, a teenage mother, birthing unassisted with no midwife. So, here is what I wrote for her.
She put her trust not in man,
but in sacred Heavenly Father's hand
No worries did she hold, no fear
for she was sure her Lord was near.
In wisdom she knew she'd have no control,
so she humbly surrendered, to feel it in full.
Relying not on the instruments of learned man,
Rather with faith she did submit to His plan.
It was so fitting to be outdoors,
a room in the inn was not for her.
And in that solitude of nature unfurled,
She brought forth in glory,
the Savior of the World!
