Gentle Woman Hymn

And for today, one of my favorite church hymns about Mary.

 Hail Mary: Gentle Woman

by Carey Landry


Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with you

Blessed are you among women,

And blest is the fruit of your womb, Jesus

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners

Now and at the hour of our death, Amen

Gentle woman, Quiet light

Morning star so strong and bright

Gentle Mother, peaceful dove

Teach us wisdom, teach us love   (Refrain)

You were chosen by the Father

you were chosen for the Son

you were chosen from all women

and for woman, a shining one    (Repeat refrain)

Blessed are you among women

Bless in turn all women too

Blessed that with peaceful spirits

Blessed they with gentle hearts    (Repeat refrain)
