There Is Nothing Told (Christopher Willcock)



1. There is nothing told about this woman,
but that she had once become engaged,
and an angel addressed her and said:
"You are blessed among all your kind."

Refrain:
On this day all earth and all paradise
join in naming you happy and blessed;
Virgin Mary, blessed are you.
2. There is nothing told about this woman,
but that she had brought into the world,
in the land of Judea, her;
for some shepherds have passed on this tale. (Refrain)

3. There is nothing told about this woman,
but that she had searched for three long days
for her child who was busy elsewhere,
and her heart then did not understand. (Refrain)

4. There is nothing told about this woman,
but that she at Cana was a guest,
and that Jesus changed water to wine,
so that all might believe who he was. (Refrain)

5. There is nothing told about this woman,
but that she was standing by the cross
when her son stretched his arms out on high,
and met death with a thief on each side. (Refrain)

6. There is nothing told about this woman,
but that she was one in prayer with those
upon whom tongues of fire did descend,
and Spirit baptized them with flame. (Refrain)

Composer: Christopher Willcock (b. 1947)
