THOU THAT ART SO FAIR AND BRIGHT


1 Thou that art so fair and bright,
Velut maris stella,
Brighter than the day is light,
Parens et puélla,
I cry to thee, look thou on me,
Lady, pray thy Son for me,
Tampia, So that I might come to thee, María.
2 All this world was so forlorn
Eva peccatrice,
Till our Lord was in it born,
De te genetríce;
With Ave, sorrow went away,
Darkest night to brightest day,
Salútis, From thee came the saving ray, Virtútis.
3 Lady, flow'r of ev'rything,
Rosa sine spina,
Gave us Jesus, heaven's King,
Grátia divina;
Of ev'ryone thou bear'st the prize,
Lady, Queen of Paradise,
Elécta, Maiden mild and Mother wise, Es effécta.
