Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, Little Office of Our Lady

Remember, Maker of the world,
That, from the Virgin’s sacred womb,
Ere while on earth among us born,
Our body’s form thou didst assume.

O Mary, mother of all grace,
And parent of sweet clemency,
Do thou protect us from the foe,
And take us to thee when we die.

Jesus, to Thee be glory given,
Who erst wast born, the Virgin’s Son,
With Father and with Holy Ghost,
While everlasting ages run. Amen.

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