O Christ of Mary

O Christ of Mary
8 8 8 8

O Christ of Mary, Israel’s son,
Through her incarnate have become,
Through flesh as human as can be,
Through her for all humanity.

Within her, God on earth to dwell;
She carries the Immanuel.
In faith she bears God’s holy Son;
Divine and human, both in one.

To God voice raised with pregnant cry,
Her Kuriou she magnifies.
With God in her is Mary blessed;
Her own womb holds God’s promised Rest.

O Christ, like Mary, so may we,
Our lives to praise and work for thee.
For we too bear the Christ within;
By grace alone, where all begins.
