A Hymn to the Virgin

Language: English

Of one that is so fayr and bright
  Velut maris stella,
Brighter than the dayes light,
  Parens et puella:
Ic crie to thee, thou see to me,
Levedy, preye thi Sone for me
  Tam pia,
That ich mote come to thee.

Levedy, flour of alle thing,
  Rosa sine spina,
Thu bere Jhesu, hevene king,
  Gratia divina:
Of alle thu berst the pris,
Levedy, quene of Parays
Maide milde, Moder es

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, it is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
