Gentle woman, quiet light, morning star
so strong and bright,
gentle mother peaceful dove
teach us wisdom; teach us love.

You were chosen by the Father:
You were chosen for the Son,
You were chosen from all women
and for woman shining one.

Gentle woman, quiet light, morning star
so strong and bright
gentle mother peaceful dove
teach us wisdom; teach us love

Blessed are you among women
Blessed touch over the true
Blessed they with peaceful spirits
Blessed they with special hearts.

Gentle woman, quiet light,
Gentle woman peaceful dove
Gentle mother, quiet light,
Gentle woman peaceful dove

Gentle woman.......Gentle woman.........
Gentle woman............Gentle woman

Here's the whole song as shown in the 2007 Today's Missal Music Issue:

Intro: Cantor
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women, and
Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners now,
And at the hour of death.  Amen.

Refrain: All
Gentle woman, quiet light, morning star
so strong and bright,
gentle mother peaceful dove
teach us wisdom; teach us love.

Verses: All
You were chosen by the Father:
You were chosen for the Son,
You were chosen from all women
and for woman shining one.

Blessed are you among women
Blessed in turn all women too
Blessed they with peaceful spirits
Blessed they with gentle hearts.

Hope this helps,

Gary

This is how I'm supposed to sing it on Monday at church:
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women, and
Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners now,
And at the hour of death.  Amen.
Gentle woman, quiet light, morning star
so strong and bright,
gentle mother peaceful dove
teach us wisdom; teach us love.
You were chosen by the Father:
You were chosen for the Son,
You were chosen from all women
and for woman shining one.
Gentle woman, quiet light, morning star
so strong and bright,
gentle mother peaceful dove
teach us wisdom; teach us love,
teach us wisdom; teach us love.

I love that song. my mother use to sing that to me and now I sing it to my boys.

My sister and I chose this song to be sung at a quiet moment during my mother's funeral Mass -- which was yesterday.  It was a most poignant and touching interlude.

its my mothers favorite song!

We just learned that my mother who has lived with dementia for over three years has cancer and is not expected to live more than two months at the longest.  We will use this hymn at her funeral, and I was looking for the words and music to share with the organist when needed.  Thank-you and God Bless you, and our mothers.

My mother died on 12/22/09 and we had this song sung at her funeral.  It was so beautiful and touching.
Posted:  22 Feb 2010 04:14
I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother.  I am very touched that you searched for and found the words to this beautiful song.  I, too, was searching for the words as I plan for my own funeral....years away I hope.  It's just so special and lovely.  I hope the memory brings great comfort to you every time you hear it.  May God bless you.

Oh my gosh, I can't belive I've found this song - it has brought back so many HAPPY childhood memories - our school used to sing this all the time at assembly in the hall (St. Mary's Primary, Avondale, Auckland NZ)  It's my one of my favourites and I often reminisce when I sing it and love singing it to my 3 beautiful daughters (now living in Tonga) and I would often slip with some of the lyrics (many years later) but I am sooooooooooo happy now to have found this .... THANK YOU - MALO AUPITO GOD BLESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My sisters and I also choose this song for my mom funeral , which on Mothers day will be exactly   2 months to the day. ( March 9)  just reading the words brings tears to my eyes....
God Bless

Our son heard this at Mother's Day mass & thought of his wife & myself . What a tribute ! They are going through some difficult times after their son's surgery & I am sure his wife was touched , as I was.
God bless all moms !

We had this as the tribute song to our mother at her funeral on 5/11/2010.  I will never forget her or the song.  Like all Loving Mothers she taught us Wisdom and Love.  I do miss her.

So lovely - I would  love to wake up to this music every morning.  Here is a link if you want to hear how it is sung - this is the version we sing at mass. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85tfBBmbuMc

Thanks to all of you, especially Gary back in 2008.

I solo with a pianist who plays chords.  My PP especially has asked for this one next Sunday, the Assumption of BVM.  He'd like it for Communion reflection, and I have not done it since I was in a choir at a previous parish a few years ago.  I have never sung this beautiful hymn solo.  So all of the above contributors have helped.  Thank you all.

JESUS SAVES.....so praise HIM....not  mary..she CANNOT save you from HELL...JESUS  IS THE ONLY WAY...trust HIM now as your personal Savior...
eternal life is through JESUS CHRIST alone...

GOD BLESS-

Visiting family i decided to attend mass at this beautiful church in Marietta, Ga.
The first song that was sung  was " Gentle Woman".Tears came to my eyes, as I thought of my mother who has been ill, and the many times many years ago that she, her lady friends and I would attend Novenas on Tuesday nights.
I feel somehow that I was meant to go to that Church to hear that song when I did.
It gave me a much needed lift and reminded me of what is important in life.

Great! May God bless you because you too love HIS MOTHER AS HE DOES!

I have found that when my sweet, but strong willed 4 year old son has his worst tantrums, singing songs about the Blessed Virgin Mary calms us BOTH.  This song is one of our favorites.  The tantrums melt into moments of peaceful reflection for me, reminding me not to fight him or break his will, but to praise God for giving me this precious child, and to trust Him to also give me all the stregnth, patience, and wisdom to be a good mother to my child, as well.  I am inspired, especialy, when I sing of Mary, and her acceptance of God's will for her!  What better role model as a mother??
