I. Hymn to the Virgin
Of one who 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 may come to thee.

All this world was forlorn,
Eva Peccatrice,
Til' our Lord was yborn,
De te genetrice.
With ave it went away,
Darkest night and comes the day
The well springeth out of thee.

Lady, flow'r of everything,
Rosa sine spina,
Thou bare Jesu, heaven's king,
Gratia divina:
Of all thou bearest the prize,
Lady, queen of paradise,
Maid mild, mother
es effecta.
