Mary, Mary, Makes Her Humble Journey


This text explores the story of the visitation, Mary visiting Elizabeth when they are both pregnant (Luke 1:39-56).

Pastor Paul Koch (NALC) requested a hymn on this Bible text for use at a celebratory pro-life service for North Region Pregnancy Care Center in Roseau, Minnesota, in March 2014. I paired it with the Hebrew lullaby Numi, Numi, which Pastor Koch sang while playing his original guitar accompaniment.

It was also used by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church-Morris, Minnesota (LC-MC) for their Advent services in December 2014. Professor Joyce Schubkegel set the Middle Eastern tune very beautifully for keyboard, which is the setting available to you here.

This haunting lullaby will be new to most, but it’s worth the learning! I might suggest that a soloist or choir sing the first refrain and the verses, with the congregation joining in on subsequent refrains.
