All Hail to you Mary




This simple hymn about Mary was written by English Roman Catholic priest, teacher and later bishop, David Konstant (1930–2016).

It was published in the 20th Century Folk Hymnal, volume 3 in 1976  and Hymns Old and New with Supplement (1993) but no further publications have been found.  Second-hand copies of these books are the best source of sheet music for the hymn.

It is set to an unnamed tune by Malcolm Campbell-Carr. This has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of G, the first few notes are D G_G F F E_ E A_ A G F_ with accompanying chords G / D / A / D.

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
1 All hail to you Mary
Most favoured by God
Teach us to follow 
the path you once trod.

Chorus:
Ave, ave, ave Maria.

2 When Gabriel had spoken
you humbly said "Yes".
May we have the courage
God's word to confess.

3 To those for whom sickness
and sadness are near
show Jesus your first-born 
our Saviour from fear.

4 With Joseph your husband
you cared for our Lord.
Guide parents and children 
to life's one reward

5 You treasured, dear mother,
the truth God revealed.
By seeking true wisdom
our faith will be sealed.

6 You spoke at the wedding
and Christ gave them wine.
He now gives his people
the true bread divine.

7 We trustfully echo 
the prayer of your Son,
that all of God's children 
may love and be one.

8 In anguish enfolded 
are mother and Son.
By sharing their passion
our victory is won.

9 When Christ died he gave you
As mankind's new Eve.
Inspire all your children
To hope and believe.

10 God's life was your living, 
With him you found peace.
May his loving presence,
in us, find increase.
