Sting – Gabriel's Message lyrics

The angel Gabriel from Heaven came,
His wings as drifted snow,
His eyes as flame; 'All hail, ' said he,
'Thou lowly maiden Mary, '
Most highly favoured lady, Gloria!
'For known a blessed Mother thou shalt be,
All generations laud and honour thee,
Thy Son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold, '
Most highly favoured lady, Gloria!
Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head,
'To me be as it pleaseth God, ' she said,
'My soul shall laud and magnify his holy name. '
Most highly favoured lady, Gloria!
Of her, Emmanuel, the Christ, was born
In Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn,
And Christian folk throughout the world will ever say:
Most highly favoured lady, Gloria
