Mary, our treasure, vessel undefiléd,See how our off'ring by the flesh is sullied,
Take to Thy bosom all our works and worship,
Making them holy.
Through endless ages, Thou shalt be our shelter,
That all our merits may be free of danger,
And perseverance by Thy name be certain,
Pure gate of heaven!
There is no creature e'er so great and mightyWhose grace and virtue equal his Creator
Who, for His glory, made himself Thy subject,
Doing Thy bidding.
Then let us never turn our contemplation
To Christ our Savior, or the Holy Spirit,
Ere we salute Thee with the holy angels,
Pleasing the Father. Amen
