O CROWN OF VIRGIN CHOIRS


1 O Crown of all the Virgin choirs,
That holy Mother's Virgin Son,
Who was alone of womankind,
A Virgin Mother, both in one.
2 Encircled by Thy Virgin band,
Amid the lilies Thou art found;
For Thy pure brides with lavish hand,
Immortal graces spreading 'round.
3 And still, where-e'ver Thy footsteps bend,
They follow Thee, their glorious King,
That unto Thee thy may attend,
And with sweet hymns Thy praises sing.
4 And us, O Purity Divine,
From ev'ry wound of sin keep free;
Our ev'ry sense from fault refine,
And purify our souls for Thee.
