Mary’s Perspective in Song

Here’s a really neat Christmas song by Francesca Battestelli. I enjoyed it the first time I heard it and continue to enjoy it every time I hear it. I’ve posted the lyrics below so you can follow along. The song is sung from the perspective of a mother (Mary, the mother of Jesus).

You’re Here

Hold on now, got to take a deep breath.
I don’t know what to say when I look in your eyes.
You made the world before I was born, 
And here I am holding you in my arms tonight.

Noel, Noel
Jesus our Emmanuel.

(Chorus)
You’re here.
I’m holding you so near.
I’m staring into the face of my Savior, 
King and Creator.
You could of left us on our own.
But you’re here.

I don’t know how long I’m going to have you for, 
But I’ll be watching when you change the world.
Look at your hands, they’re still so small.
Someday you’re going to stretch them out and save us all.

Noel, Noel
God with us, Emmanuel.

(Chorus)

Someday I’m going to look back on this, 
The night that God became my baby boy.
Someday you’re going to go home again, 
But you’ll leave your spirit, 
And flood the world with joy

(Chorus)
You’ll be here.
I’m holding you so near. Oh, oh.
I’m staring into the face of my Savior, 
King and Creator.
You could of left me on my own.
But you’re here.
You’re here.
Hallelujah, you’re here.
Hallelujah, you’re here.

Did you like it?

You're Here
