Mary Our Sister

This is a non-traditional Marian hymn, which looks at the aspects of Jesus life from the point of view of the woman who gave birth to him. The author is unknown, and no publications or recordings have been located. The song was definitely used in New Zealand in the late 1980s, although not necessarily in parish settings.

It is to the tune of John Foley's One Bread One Body - although the verse and chorus are swapped around.

Lyrics

Mary, our sister
Woman alone
Did you endure the pains of birth,
When you gave life, that all might live
And did you cry into the night?
This is my body
This is my blood
This is my flesh, for all.

And Mary, our sister,
What did you say
When you held Christ within your arms?
Did you remember the times of pain,
And did you cry into the night?
This is my body
This is my blood
This is my flesh, for all.

Mary, our sister,
We remember you
When we come now to break the bread.
We know you're with us
Sharing the cup,
And for your gift of love we sing,
This is you body,
This is your blood,
This is your flesh, for all.

Mary, our sister
Woman alone
Did you endure the pains of birth,
When you gave life, that all might live
And did you cry into the night?
This is my body
This is my blood
This is my flesh, for all.

And Mary, our sister,
What did you say
When you held Christ within your arms?
Did you remember the times of pain,
And did you cry into the night?
This is my body
This is my blood
This is my flesh, for all.

Mary, our sister,
We remember you
When we come now to break the bread.
We know you're with us
Sharing the cup,
And for your gift of love we sing,
This is you body,
This is your blood,
This is your flesh, for all.
