Hail, Holy Queen Enthroned Above

Representative Text

1 Hail, holy Queen enthroned above,
O María.
Hail, Queen of mercy and of love,
O María.
Triumph, all ye Cherubim;
Sing with us, ye Seraphim.
Heav'n and earth resound the hymn:
Salve, Salve,
Salve Regína.

2 The cause of joy to all below,
O María.
The spring through which all graces flow,
O María.
Angels, all your praises bring;
Earth and heaven, with us sing;
All creation echoing:
Salve, Salve,
Salve Regína.

3 O gentle, loving, holy one,
O María.
The God of light became your Son,
O María.
Triumph, all ye Cherubim;
Sing with us, ye Seraphim.
Heav'n and earth resound the hymn:
Salve, Salve,
Salve Regína.

He was a cripple at birth, but intellectually gifted. Therefore his parents sent him to be taught by Abbot Berno on the island of Reichenau. He took his monastic vows here and died on Reichenau 21 September, 1054. He was a mathematician, astronomer, musician, chronicler, and poet, among other things.
