On This Day, O Beautiful Mother


On this day, O beautiful Mother,

On this day we give thee our love.

Near the, Madonna, fondly we hover, Trusting thy gentle care to prove.


1. On this day we ask to share,

Dearest Mother, thy sweet care;

Aid us ere our feet astray

Wander from thy guiding way.


2. Queen of angels, deign to hear

Lisping children's humble prayer; Young hearts gain, O virgin pure, Sweetly to thyself allure.


3. Rose of Sharon, Lovely flow'r, Beauteous bud of Eden's bow'r; Cherished lily of the vale,

Virgin Mother Queen we hail.
