Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, Saint Mary Magdalen, Matins

Mary, with many kisses chaste,
Washes with tears God’s sacred Feet,
And then she dries them with her hair,
And pours on them her unguents sweet.

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

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