A Hymn to the Virgin

Of one that is so fair and bright
Velut maris stella,
Brighter than the day is light,
Parens et puella:
I cry to thee, thou see to me,
Lady, pray thy Son for me,
Tam pia,
That I may come to thee

All this world was forlorn
Eva peccatrice,
Till our Lord was y-born
De te genetrice.
With ave it went away
Darkest night and comes the day
The well springeth out of thee,

Lady, flower of everything,
Rose sine spina,
Thou bear Jesu, heavens king,
Gratia divina:
Of all thou bearst the prize,
Lady, queen of paradise
Maid mild, mother es
