How blest the virgin who endued




How blest the matron,
who, endued
With holy zeal and fortitude,
Has won through grace
a saintly fame,
And owns a dear
and honored name.


Such holy love
inflamed her breast
She would not seek
on earth her rest,
But, strong in faith
and patience, trod
The narrow way
that leads to God.


She learned,
through fasting, to control
The flesh that weigheth
down the soul,
And then, by prayer’s
sweet food sustained,
To seek the joys
she now has gained.


O Christ, from Whom
all virtue springs,
Who only doest
wondrous things,
To Thee, the King
of saints, we pray,
Accept and bless Thy flock today.


All praise to God
the Father be,
All praise, eternal Son, to Thee,
Whom with the Spirit we adore
For ever and for evermore.

How blest the virgin,
who, endued
With holy zeal and fortitude,
Has won through grace
a saintly fame,
And owns a dear
and honored name.
