Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, Common of Virgins

O Thou, who Thy Virginal Mother didst make,
Who wast borne and brought forth by a Virgin most fair,
We sing on the Feast of a Virgin most blest.
Receive then our prayer.

Most merciful God, O forgive at her prayer,
All due to our sins of Thy punishments keen,
That so to Thy Glory we praises may sound,
With hearts that are clean.

May praise through all times to the Father be given,
And to Him the Begotten, His Only True Son,
And to Thee who art Spirit of Both, all the Three
But one God alone. Amen.

– translated by Archbishop Edward Gilpin Bagshawe, C.O., Bishop of Nottingham, England
