Through the world thy children raise

Representative Text

1 Through the world thy children raise
Their prayers, and still we see,
Calm are the nights and bright the days
Of those who trust in thee.

Star of the Sea, we kneel and pray,
When tempests raise their voice,
Star of the Sea, the haven reached,
We call thee, we call thee and rejoice:
Star of the Sea, Star of the Sea.

2 Queen of heav'n! when we are sad,
Best solace of our pains,
It tells us though on earth we toil,
Our Mother lives and reigns. [Chorus]
