Representative Text

1 Oh, fairest of all visions,
With meekly folded hands,
Adoring eyes uplifted,
Before her God she stands.

Mother pure, Mother pure,
Virgin fair, Virgin fair,
Spotless Dove, Spotless Dove,
Peerless Maid, Peerless Maid,
Crown'd Queen of God's creation,
Our Queen Immaculate.

2 Oh! fairest of all visions,
That met the eager gaze,
Of Patriarch and Prophet,
In far primeval days. [Chorus]

3 Oh! fairest of all visions,
Our weary exile o'er,
In thy unclouded glory
We'll see thee evermore. [Chorus]

4 We'll see thee, Queen and Mother,
Enthroned in royal state,
In all thy virgin splendor,
Our Queen Immaculate. [Chorus]
