Hymn to The Virgin lyrics

A Hymn to the Virgin

OF one that is so fair and bright
Velut maris stella,
Brighter than the day is light,
Parens et puella:
I cry to thee, thou see to me,
Lady, pray thy Son for me,
Tam pia,
That I might come to thee
Maria.

All this world was forlorn
Eva peccatrice,
Till our Lord was y-born
De te genetrice.
With ave it went away
Darkest night and comes the day
Salutis;
The well springeth out of thee,
Virtutis.

Lady, flower of everything,
Rose sine spina,
Thou bear Jesu, heavens king,
Gratia divina:
Of all thou bearst the prize,
Lady, queen of paradise
Electa:
Maid mild, mother es
Effecta.
