Lady of Sweet Guadelupe

Mother Mary you knew me
Before I ever knew you
You could see me walking
Deep into the dark

You were waiting for me
You were praying for me
To Jesus my Lord and Saviour

You are praying for the lost
'Cause you know the cost
That he paid out on the Cross

Ave Maria, Ave Maria
Queen of the Angeles
Our Lady of sweet Guadeupe

Jesus looked upon you
Gave his son John to you
You shall be his mother
You shall be your son
In that special moment
Of our Lord's atonement
You became the mother
of everyone
