MARY’S LOVE by JUDI PAYNE
As Mary gazed upon His face The angels sang 'A Child is born!' Yet at the cross, She saw His precious head with crown of thorn The hands that she once held in hers, Were mailed upon the tree. She watched Him take His early steps; Those feet were pierced for me! With a mother's love she nourished Him And made sure He was fed; Yet, at the cross, she heard Him cry 'I thirst' and bow His head. And when He cried 'It's finished' They pierced His precious side And we, like Mary, worship; 'Twas for me the Saviour died! They placed Him in a borrowed tomb With stone rolled to the door But, Hallelujah!, Christ arose! And lives for evermore!
