Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, Our Lady, Throughout The Year, Lauds

O thou, above all virgins bright,
Enthroned above the stars on high,
Who thy Creator, as a Babe,
With food dost from thy breast supply.

What Eve unhappy took away,
Thou dost, with thy fair Child, restore,
And, that lost men may enter Heaven,
Dost open Heaven’s starry door.

Thou art the Gate of the great King,
Thou art the Hall of dazzling Light,
Life, through the Virgin given, sing,
Nations redeemed, with alt your might.

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
