For Our Lady's virtue,
Be as she: incomparable,
Bold and Free,
None Fairer, Be as she,
The one whose boy,
Is like unto the son.
Brighten for the future,
Hope in me; Uncontainable,
As the sea,
Wild woman, Hope in me,
The one to whom,
All this great wrong you've done.
Be more than the chamber,
In which we, in our ignorance,
None weaker; Blind and Free,
We are, whose blood,
Is yours, whose sins you share.
In our bleak years be gentle,
Bend your knees; All-formidable,
Mercy on me!
None weaker; Always be,
The one, whose strength,
And warmth are like the sun.
