O Mother of Light

Font:

O Mother of light, the pride of nations,
The beginning of joy, the treasure of grace,
The source of happiness, origin of mercy,
O Mary, the daughter of Joachim.

The exalted, living, worshiped Lord,
Honored you with perfection, O daughter of David,
And Gabriel visited you, with the promised mystery,
O Mary, the daughter of Joachim.

He granted you blessedness, by the descent of the Grace,
By a wondrous mystery, you bore the Word,
And He saved every grievous soul, from the bond of darkness
O Mary, the daughter of Joachim.

Hail to you, O rod of Aaron,
Blessed are you, O daughter of Zion,
The righteous rejoice at your name,
O Mary, the daughter of Joachim.

Rejoice O Mary, O chosen bride,
O honored seed, and dome and tower,
O exalted root, of all purity,
O Mary, the daughter of Joachim.

You became a heaven, carrying the Holy One,
More honored than the power, higher than the ranks,
We beseech you intercession, before the Lord Jesus,
O Mary, the daughter of Joachim.

We ask you O Virgin, O crown of Israel,
O joy of the martyrs, O origin of rejoicing,
Intercession and victory, before Emmanuel.
O Mary, the daughter of Joachim.
