1 When the angel came to Mary
he said, 'Be at peace,
for the Lord God shall be with you,
his love will not cease.'
And Mary bore Jesus Christ,
our saviour for to be;
and the first and the last
and the greatest is he, is he, is he;
and the first and the last
and the greatest is he.

2 When the angel came to Mary
he said, 'Do not fear,
for his power shall be upon you,
a child you will bear.'
Chorus

3 When the angel came to Mary
he said, 'Hear his name,
for his title shall be Jesus
of kingly acclaim.'
Chorus

4 When the angel came to Mary,
she said, 'Be it so;
for the Lord God is my master,
his will I must do.'
Chorus
