Go Tell the World about Mary

This children's song about Mary the Mother of God was written by American Roman Catholic Legion of Mary member, folk musician and retailer, Bill Peffley, AKA William C. Peffley, Jr. (1929-2017 - ref).

It was included in an LP of his songs called "MARY SONGS" which was released by Balance House in 1972 (ref).

No published sheet music has been found.

The unnamed tune, also by Peffley, has a 3/4 time signature, and can be played using the chords C G.


"But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart" - Alice Havers (1850–1890) - ref.

Lyrics

Go tell the world about Mary.
Go tell the world about her joy.
God the creator was her little boy
And she'd lull him to sleep
With a song for him deep in her arms,

Go tell the world about Mary.
Go tell the world about her pain.
God the Redeemer was her young son slain
And his love she would keep
And would ponder it deep in her heart.

Go tell the world about Mary.
Go tell the world about her place
Mother of Christ in the whole human race,
And His life she will keep,
And will care for it deep in her heart.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Go tell the world about Mary.
Go tell the world about her joy.
God the creator was her little boy
And she'd lull him to sleep
With a song for him deep in her arms,

Go tell the world about Mary.
Go tell the world about her pain.
God the Redeemer was her young son slain
And his love she would keep
And would ponder it deep in her heart.

Go tell the world about Mary.
Go tell the world about her place
Mother of Christ in the whole human race,
And His life she will keep,
And will care for it deep in her heart.
