Mary – A Mother’s Question

What did you think when you were told

Your child was worth much more than gold?

Did you know the price he’d pay,

The suffering in his last day

The desolation and the loss,

To bear our sins upon a cross

And if you had the right to choose

Would your son or mankind lose?

I guess it’s good you did not know

The price you’d pay so long ago.

Or did you know the pain you’d feel,

When God gave all for us to heal?

Perhaps you sensed what he must do

Though he was still a part of you.

And still you chose to follow God,

In your gift, you gave him laud.

So souls were saved and man was free

To choose his fate, his destiny,

Because your son came to be

The gift of life on Calvary.
