    I found this last year at a retreat and I keep it sitting in my room next to my computer :) I hope you all enjoy it (I'm sure some of you have heard this poem before!)

    "To Our Lady"

    Lovely Lady dressed in blue --
    Teach me how to pray!
    God was just your little Boy,
    Tell me what to say!

    Did you lift Him up, sometimes,
    Gently, on your knee?
    Did you sing to Him the way,
    Mother does to me?

    Did you hold His hand at night?
    Did you ever try
    Telling stories of teh world?
    O! And did He cry?

    Do you really think He cares
    If I tell Him things --
    Little things that happen? And
    Do the Angel's wings,

    Make a noise? And can He hear
    Me if I speak low?
    Does He understand me now?
    Tell me -- for you know.

    Lovely Lady dresesd in blue,
    Teach me how to pray!
    God was just your little Boy,
    And you know the way.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I think I know that song...sounds vaguely familiar...I'd probably remember it right away if I heard it :)

    Allow me to sing it for you:

    Mary, did you know
    that your baby boy will one day walk on water?

    Mary, did you know
    that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?

    Did you know,
    that your baby boy has come to make you new?
    This child that you've delivered,
    will soon deliver you.

    Mary, did you know
    that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?

    Mary, did you know
    your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?

    Did you know,
    that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
    When you kiss your little baby,
    you've kissed the face of God.

    The blind will see
    The deaf will hear
    The dead will live again.
    The lame will leap
    The dumb will speak
    The praises of The Lamb.

    Mary, did you know
    that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?

    Mary, did you know
    that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?

    Did you know,
    that your baby boy is heaven's perfect lamb?
    This sleeping child you're holding, is the great I AM.

    I love the poem :)

    And Carrye, that's one of my favorite Christmas songs (although I never hear it used in Catholic churches...I stumbled upon it on the radio [I listen to the Christian station hehe]).

    I think I heard it at one Mass . . . but I heard it first on the radio.

    The reason that I never liked this song is this line:

    This child that you've delivered,
    will soon deliver you.

    It's dogmatically incorrect. Jesus delivered her at the moment of her conception.

    That struck me when I first read it, too. Rest of the song is beautiful though.

    I like the "did you know?" lines because Mary seemed to accept A LOT on faith, she didn't understand everything. She seemed to "ponder" a lot of things "in her heart." Share thoughts please :hug:

    And I agree Carrye has a lovely singing voice :D

    Thanks for posting that...it's probably one of my favorite Marian poems. It's probably one of the easiest ways (for me at least) to understand Mary's role in our lives.
