I’m not sure about this one – it would be good to hear it sung by a ordinary church choir.
O holy dwelling place of God.
O holy temple of the Word.
O Holy Mary, holy mother of God.
O radiant star of heaven , illuminating the night;
Reflection of the Son, our source of life and light.
O blest beyond all others, of ev’ry land and race,
Possessing in your soul the fullness of God’s grace.
From heav’n the angel Gabriel annouced the ancient plan
And humbly you accepted to bear the God made man.
With joy beyond all measure you cared for God’s own Son
And pondered in your heart the new age now begun.
Exquisite was your sorrow, unequaled was the loss
You suffered when your son was raised upon the cross.
All praise and adoration we sing now to your Son
Who reigns in highest heaven and has the vic’try won.
