Lovely Lady Dressed in Blue

Lovely Lady dressed in blue

Blessed Virgin Mary

Blessed Virgin Mary

Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
Tell me what to say!

Did you lift Him up, sometimes,
Gently on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way
Mother does to me?

Did you hold His hand at night?
Did you ever try
Telling stories of the world?
O! And did He cry?

Do you really think He cares
If I tell Him things
Little things that happen? And
Do the Angels’ wings

Make a noise? And can He hear
Me if I speak low?
Does He understand me now?
Tell me, for you know.

Lovely Lady dressed in blue
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
And you know the way.

I cast all my fears and issues on it,
My lust and desires of the flesh nailed to it,
It`s my only hope in time of worry,

My sure way to eternal Calvary

Tensions and pressures of mine it takes away,
It renews my strength everyday,
To fight the attacks of the demon in every way,
Till one day in heaven we stand together with our loved ones all the way

Like the Snake that was erected to save God`s chosen in desert,
So it stands among us to forgive and forget,
For our iniquities he was dead it reminds us,
Inspiring us to die to ourselves and server others

What a wonderful symbol is the cross,
Our definite strength and power,
Solution to our inert problems,
Answer to our greatest questions
