Sting & The Police - Gabriel’s message
(Baskisch kerstliedje)
Vertaling: Sabine Baring Gould
(1985)






The Angel Gabriel from heaven came
His wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flame
“All hail”, said he, “thou Holy Maiden Mary
Most highly favoured Lady”
Gloria



“For known, a blessed mother thou shalt be
All generations love and honor thee
Thy son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold
Most highly favoured Lady”
Gloria



The 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 everyone throughout the world will ever say:
“Most highly favoured Lady”
Gloria
