DANCE – “Mary Did You Know”
ANGELS VOICE: Therefore, the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Mary enters, pacing back and forth on the stage.
MARY: This has to be a dream. Who am I that I should bear Gods son? How am I going to tell Joseph without him assuming that I have been with someone else? I did not expect this at all. I had my day all planned out. I would get up, do some washing and cleaning and
take a long walk into Jerusalem to find that perfect wedding dress…and shoes…and
(her excitement fades)
now I hear that I will conceive and bear a son. Me…a simple old fashioned village girl highly favored of God above all women.
(finds a place to sit)
I am not worthy. I dont even know how to think about this. I mean, how many women get a chance to see an angel…to see God…
(touches her stomach)
To be the mother of the savior..the redeemer…the one who will come and set captives free, give liberty to the oppressed…save us.
I must go and see Elizabeth. If she is pregnant as the angel says…then that means this is not a dream and if this is not a dream…(starts to get excited) Then I am going to be the mother of Gods son.
(pause) – Mary exits.
