A Hymn to the Virgin
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
That ich mote come to thee.
Levedy, flour of alle thing,
Rosa sine spina,
Thu bere Jhesu, hevene king,
Of alle thu berst the pris,
Levedy, quene of Parays
Maide milde, Moder es

Notes about green, red, and white dots
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it
and, despite my best efforts, this project has never received public funding. It is
supported financially by roughly 0.013% of our visitors.
So if you found
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
