What a beautiful song; it's one of my favorites. I love Our Lady so much! :extrahappy: Thanks for posting!

Did you know Beyonce has a song with this same title? What do you think about that? She is married to a freemason & doesn't seem Catholic, but I didn't really listen to the song. It just didn't seem good.

I haven't listened to Beyonce's version - she is too commercialized. Don't despise the song because someone has twisted it into something it was never meant to be.

Our Lady is much, much greater than Beyonce would like to betray her!

Yes I agree & I like the real song. I like some of the versions sung by women the best.

I agree. However, the one version I do do have is by Josh Groban.

With songs like this, I look (or listen :)) for the heart of the artist as they direct it towards the song itself - not someone wanting to be cute or flashy and try to invent something new or different.

I love the version sung by David Archuleta. It is so beautiful!

I haven't. In fact, it's his version that I have as a ringer on my phone. ;)
