Mary MacKillop

Rex Urbano and the choir at Our Lady Of Fatima, Acacia Ridge are marking Mary MacKillop’s feast day tomorrow by singing Gary Pinto’s song about the saint.

You can hear Gary Pinto’s version here.  The sheet music is available here.  It goes very high and can just about be sung down an octave. My backing only uses the MIDI voices on BIAB and since the sheet music is out there I’ll put a link for the MIDI file as well.

VERSE 1

In sacrifice, You lived your life

And in God’s Will, You found your delight.

Child of God, Bride of Christ

Djurumin and shining light.

Through the Cross you show hope to everyone

Shining in the heart of the great southern land.

 

CHORUS

Saint Mary is your name

The angels rejoice.

Through your life you proclaimed

the Name above all names.

Helper of the poor

Mother of the lonely

Pray for us.

 

VERSE 2

You Lifted the head

Of fallen ones.

Raising them up, you helped them to stand.

With all your heart

You served The Lord.

And through God’s Love

You cared for the poor.

Through the Cross you show hope to everyone

Shining in the heart of the great southern land.

 

CHORUS

BRIDGE 

And the heavens sing

Alleluia, Jesus reign.

Oh, children of the world shall sing

Alleluia

St Mary pray for us. 

 

Saint Mary is your name

The angels rejoice.

Through your life you proclaimed

The Name above all names.

CHORUS

Pray for us {“Mary MacKillop, Mary MacKillop”}

(Repeat phrase as needed)

Pray for us

    I was wondering if was able to download the backing track so I could use it for my choir at school at Mater Dei Blakehurst.

    Regards,

    Anne

    I absolutely love and adore this song and video clip. I teach in a Josephite College and I play this most mornings as part of our prayer. We practically know all the words now and sing it at the top of our lungs!! I have to really hold back the tears each and every time though! I just can’t help but get emotional xx
