Cantiga de Santa Maria, No. 100


Portugease


Santa Maria,
Strela do dia,
mostra-nos via
era Deus e nos guia.

Ca veer faze-los errados
que perder foran per pecados
entender de que mui culpados
son; mais per ti son perdõados
da ousadia
que lles fazia
fazer folia
mais que non deveria,
Santa Maria…

Amostrar-nos deves carreira
por gãar en toda maneira
a sen par luz e verdadeira
que tu dar-nos podes senlleira;
ca Deus a ti a
outorgaria
e a querria
por ti dar e daria.
Santa Maria…

Guiar ben nos pod' o teu siso
mais ca ren pera Parayso
u Deus ten senpre goy' e riso
pora quen en el creer quiso;
e prazer-m-ia
se te prazia
que foss' a mia
alm' en tal compannia.
Santa Maria…


English

Mary, magnified be,
with Daystar beside thee;
show the way where bide we
true to God and thou our guide be.

For thou art light that lost souls driven
near perdition, e'er with sin ill striven,
know that they with guilt sore riven
stand; but throught thee are forgive
and from their pride free
where they ne'er idly
let passion denied be
bout did all sense defied see.
Blessed Mary…

Thou canst reveal to us wayfaring
paths to tread in grace full sharing
to peerless Light, the trugh declaring,
that thou alone art graced in bearing;
for God would abide thee
and all provide He
but ne'er thee denied see
nor for thee grace e'er belied be.
Blessed Mary…

Well for us thy wisdom guiding
till in Paradise abiding
where God all joy and mirth providing
waits ever those in him confiding;
then would my joy descried be
shouldst thou but deign provide me
that rest on high beside thee
my soul where doth abide he
Blessed Mary …

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
