The Book of Mary by Raymond A. Foss

She who was there in the beginning
the handmaiden of God
the mother of Christ
She carried the seed of the Spirit
her life forever changed
her child resting in the manger
gifts from kings
shepherds bow at his side
Watching him grow
in the shadow of prophecy
his steps according to God’s plan
A man, reborn, a descending dove
trials in the wilderness
her son wandering, healing
his words, his life
bringing the kingdom near
Her son, a sacrificial lamb
paying for the sins of man
dying on the cross
Our savior, rising from the grave
closing the Book of Mary
