Our Queen of the May

Listen to the music - MIDI version

 

This song celebrates the Christian tradition of young children crowning a statue of Mary with flowers in the month of May following a short procession. One of the participants is chosen beforehand to be the person to actually place the "crown" and this is a very special role.

      Chorus
      Mother of Jesus, mother of all
      Mother of mothers, there when we call
      We thank you, we love you
      We need you and pray
      That you will be always, our Queen of the May

      We bring you fresh flowers, formed into a ring
      In order to crown you and welcome the Spring
      We want to be near you, on this special day
      Mary, we love you, our Queen of the May

      Chorus
      Mother of Jesus, mother of all
      Mother of mothers, there when we call
      We thank you, we love you
      We need you and pray
      That you will be always, our Queen of the May

      And so let us crown you, and let us process
      All who are gathered, we ask you to bless
      Forever with us, we ask you to stay
      Mary, we love you, our Queen of the May

      Chorus
      Mother of Jesus, mother of all
      Mother of mothers, there when we call
      We thank you, we love you
      We need you and pray
      That you will be always, our Queen of the May
