What would it be like in this world of ours,
If we, like Mary, said, “Yes, let it be
According to Your wishes, O Lord.”
What would it be like, in this world of ours,
If we would say. “Yes,” to the Lord, our God
With little or no understanding.
What would it be like if we were to choose
Not to just “talk”, if we’d choose to serve You.
Lord, could we make any difference
If we’d faithfully obey Your commands,
And gave up control of our changing world?
(Which we’ve never had in the first place!).
What would it be like if we’d just proclaim
“Yes!” to Your way, Your word, and Your promise;
“Yes” to You, Lord, whatever Your wish!
