Firstborn of Mary

Firstborn of Mary,
provocative preacher,
itinerant teacher,
outsider's choice;
Jesus inspires and disarms and confuses
whoever he choses to hear his voice.
-- Iona Community

It's not every day someone pulls something from my blog. Thanks for the plug. It is a lovely hymn. I'll see if I can make it in to a pdf and forward you a copy. The Iona Community has published many hymns over the years and are worth checking out. Peace.
