Adventures in Hymnwriting, Part Whatever

Hymn for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception
Lyrics and Music: Maureen S. O'Brien

Mary, praise the God who saved
You before your wombing!
Bride to Him you raised and bore,
He raised you from entombing.

You, the first Evangelist --
You, who knew such sorrow --
Point us to your Son through this.
Sing of God's tomorrow.

Sinless by the grace of God,
Sinless by your choices,
You sing praise, new Eve! while we
For you raise our voices.

(Queen of Poets, pray for us!
Mother of God's Word,
Pray for us, that we may write
So God's voice is heard.

By Your Son, like John, we've been
Named your sons and daughters.
Queen of Poets, pray for us
By the living waters!)
