Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, Commons of Women Saints, Lauds and Vespers

Let us all praise this woman Saint,
Endowed with brave and manly soul,
Whose name, with glory far renowned
Is on the Saints illustrious roll.

Wounded with holy love, she shunned
Of noxious things the noxious love,
And mounted to the arduous way
That leads to Heavenly things above.

With fasting she subdued her flesh,
With sweetest prayers she fed her mind,
And so to her, as her reward,
The joys of Heaven have been assigned.

Strength of the strong, O Christ, our King,
Thou only dost great things achieve,
We beg Thee then, besought by her,
Our prayer benignly to receive.

To God the Father glory be.
And also to His Only Son,
With the Great Spirit Paraclete,
Now, and while endless ages run. Amen.

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