(Introduction for 5 measures)

Father God You sent Your angel Gabriel to me,
Greeted me as if I were some kind of royalty.
Now my heart's not changed by the promise I made
Just moments ago,
But I'm alone, confused and I have some doubts
You should know.

Though it was written by the prophet Isaiah
That this would come to be,
Surely there's someone 'lot stronger
Worthier than me.
Still You have chosen who You have chosen
Your promise fulfilled through me.
I am a handmaid.
Still I have chosen whom I have chosen,
My promise fulfilled through thee.

Let it be done to me,
Let there be praise for Thee.
From this earthly vessel
let Your Word be known,
Age to age Word made flesh
from Your Heavenly throne.

Remember I'm betrothed to Joseph
so gentle, meek and kind;
How will he react when I tell him,
with Your Child am I?
Now I don't want to tell You how
this plan of Yours should go;
Have You considered all the options
is there someone else You know?

(Change key)
Let it be done to me,
Let there be praise for Thee.
From this earthly vessel
let Your Word be known;
Age to age Word made flesh
from Your Heavenly throne.

My soul sings of the promise that You bring;
The Mighty One has done great things
Holy is His Name.
My soul sings of the promise that You bring;
The Mighty One has done great things
Holy is His Name.
My soul sings of the promise that You bring;
The Mighty One has done great things
Holy is His Name.

Teri Bainbridge2008-12-17This is one of my husband's favorite Christmas songs, since we had found it on the computer. He had passed away in January 31,2008. My cousin sang it again this year in our Church Christmas concert, the tears flowed, my heart was over whelmed. When she came down off stage, she embraced me and gave me a great bit hug and a kiss on the cheek. Just letting me know that I would be all right and my husband heard her singing up in Heaven.
This song makes people think. I think you should make a CD or DVD out of it. I would surely buy a copy of it.
It has made my heart feel a little bit better this year since it will be the first Christmas without my husband, I miss him so much, but I know that he is having a blast up there in Heaven and he had made new friends, plus meeting his best friend JESUS, what more could you want for your spouse. AMEN!!

Joyce Justice2007-12-09This is a very beautiful song and I truly love it. We have a 15 year old that sang it 2 years ago in the play-The Perfect Gift. She did an excellent job as did the lady who sang it on the CD. I have ordered the cd, since no one seems to know where the original is and we are using it again this year in our play. The copys are't doing well. I just ordered it and hope that it reaches us before Dec. 20th. Can you try to get it to us before then.
Thank you very much,
2007-11-28This is a very beautiful song. I could listen to it all day long and then some.
John2007-11-28This is a lovely song and your web page makes it wonderfully accessible.

Have you any objection to changing the word "His" to "God's" for greater inclusivity when it is performed?
2007-09-30This song is beautiful, I am a teacher at a catholic School and my students will love your song. Thank you for the contribution and sharing your talents with the world.
