Mother of God album is a compilation of Orthodox Christian songs magnifying the ultimate example of a true mother. The album begins with a song that St Mary sang when she met Elizabeth her cousin known as the Magnificat. The Album then goes on to portray important aspects of St Mary’s life and how she would have felt when the Archangel Gabriel appeared to her and gave her the good news that she was going to be carrying the saviour of the world inside of her and about the birth of Lord Jesus Christ in a manger.
The Theotokos St Mary’s many virtues such as her humility and joy as well as her faith and obedience are praised through each song on the album. We as the listeners learn from her what it is like to be a true servant of the Lord. We are reminded of St Mary’s journey from when she gave birth to Our Lord Jesus in the manger to how she felt watching him grow up. We are able to learn about St Mary’s feelings and great faith as she obeyed all that was asked of her as a true maidservant of the Lord. We rejoice with her and praise her for the love she has for us and for her Son, our Lord God and Saviour Jesus Christ.
This album makes a great gift to your Sunday school or youth group especially for the feast of the Theotokos Virgin Mary to teach them the teaching of the Orthodox church through songs. Some of the songs in this album can be sung in group to encourage youth groups to sing it during meetings or conventions. Drop us an email to send you a copy of the lyrics.
This is what St Ephraim had to say about Virgin Mary:
“Come, let us wonder at the virgin most pure, wondrous in herself, unique in creation, she gave birth, yet knew no man; her pure soul with wonder was filled, daily her mind gave praise in joy at the twofold wonder: her virginity preserved, her child most dear. Blessed is He who shone forth from her!” – St. Ephraim the Syrian
