Full Text

1 O glorious Maid, exalted far
Beyond the light of burning star,
From him who made thee thou hast won
Grace to be Mother of his Son.

2 That which was lost in hapless Eve
Thy holy offspring did retrieve:
Thy tear-worn sons of Adam's race
Through thee have seen the heavenly place.

3 Thou wast the gate of heaven's high Lord,
The door through which the light hath poured.
Christians rejoice, for through a Maid
To all mankind is life conveyed.

4 O Jesu, Virgin-born, to thee
Eternal praise and glory be
Whom with the Father we adore
And Holy Spirit evermore. Amen.
