Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (2007-2011)

Mary, Can I hold your baby? Can I hold him close to me?

Can I cherish and adore him, Can I through eternity?

 

Mary, can I hold your baby as I journey through this life?

Will he know how much I need him in my weakness, sin and strife?

 

Mary, can I hold him close to me?

Can I cherish and adore him through eternity?

 

Mary, can I hold your baby, can my poor heart feel his love?

Will his spirit hear my whisper as I search for God above?

 

Mary, can I hold your baby, Can I learn to do his will?

Can I serve him without ceasing, and I all his laws fulfill?

 

Mary, can I hold your baby. Can I show him to the world?

By my very word and action will his banner be unfurled?
