O Mother Mary Magnified [2017]
for piano and medium voice

Text: Fr Philip Edwards, OSB
Performed by Angelus Echeverry

O Mother — Mary — Magnified
Womb’d Word in flesh now glorified,
Bless — beck’ning still within your bride
Stone: quickened, clustered at her side

(O Mother — Mary — Magnified)

Within the paschal-sealed tide
Of grace, arch-opened wide
About what welcoming wisdom cried
In pillared banquet signified

(O Mother — Mary — Magnified)

Addition to a gathering sum
Of leaping lepers, bedazzled dumb
Dancers, singing, find you home
Augment the alleluia’d hum
Jubilating all to whom
The Spirit and the bride say,
“Come!”
