403. Virgin-born, We Bow before You

1 Virgin-born, we bow before you:
Blessed was the womb that bore you;
Mary, Mother meek and mild,
Blessed was she in her Child.
Blessed was the breast that fed you:
Blessed was the hand that led you;
Blessed was the mother's eye
Watching o'er your infancy.

2 Blessed she by all creation.
Who brought forth the world's salvation.
Blessed they who ever blest,
Love you most and serve you best.
Virgin-born, we bow before you:
Blessed was the womb that bore you:
Mary, Mother meek and mild,
Blessed was she in her Child.
