A Mary to our Savior knelt.
And washed his feet with tear?,

"Thy sins he all forgiven !"
And she who knelt a sinner, rose,

Mary sat peacefully to hear
Her Lord, the Ivuig of king);
And He, who truly read each heart,
Jesus ot her did say :
"Mary hath chosen that good part,
Which ne'er shall pas away."
And when the Lord of heaven becamo
The lowly crucified.
Three Marys stood around tho cross,
A rid wept when Jesus died.
A Mary sought, at early dawn.
The "tomb from whence He hroo ;
And hers the first recorded name
The risen Saviour spoke.
Then Mary let it he your aim
To keep these still in view.
And, as you hear their gentle name.

Be every sin abhorred.
