Lyrics as Poetry

Woman of favor, blessed of God,
God is with you!
Like Sarah and Hannah and others of old,
all things are new!
God is with you!

Woman of favor, blessed of God,
God is with you!
This is the time when creation is blessed,
all things are new!
God is with you!

Woman of favor, blessed of God,
God is with you!
You shall give birth and have a son.
all things are new!
God is with you!

Woman of favor, blessed of God,
God is with you!
His name will be Jesus, a Saviour for all.
all things are new!
God is with you!

All things are new!
