On This Day, O Beautiful Mother
On this day, O Beautiful Mother!
On this day we give thee our love;
Near thee, Madonna, fondly we hover,
trusting thy gentle care to prove.
On this day we ask to share,
dearest Mother, thy sweet care;
Aid us e'er, our feet astray,
wandering from thy guiding way.
Queen of Angels, deign to hear,
thy dear children's humble pray'r;
Young hearts gain, O Virgin pure,
sweetly to thyself allure.
Composer: Louis Lambillotte (1796-1855)
