Mary our Mother (the Lord is with you)

Mary with baby Jesus - a statue.   Chorus:  Mary, our mother, the Lord is with you. Guide us, protect us in all that we do. 1. Angel Gabriel said to you. ‘You will be mother of Jesus.’ 2. With Elizabeth you rejoiced, ‘I will be mother of Jesus’. 3. In a manger in Bethlehem you became mother of Jesus.  4. In the temple your baby was blessed, glad to be mother of Jesus. 5. In the temple you found your son, proud to be mother of Jesus.
This children's hymn about Mary was written by Patricia Hegarty (b 1966). It was commissioned by the Irish Episcopal Commission on Catechetics and first published in 1997.

It is based on the joyful mysteries of the Rosary.

It is one of very few songs from the Alive-O programme which is also included in the In Caelo hymn book - and the latter is the best source of sheet music for the song.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by Hegarty. This has a 3/4 time signature. In the key of F, the first few notes are A F AG F GA FA G_.
