You hold me close as I rest upon your shoulder,
Close to your heart
I hear every beat proclaiming Christ’s love.
You are His Pure Vessel
You come to us as a gift, as a mother–
Someone to love in our deepest hearts.
Your Spouse awakens our desires
As you confirm them with your eyes
Show us the way, point us to Christ
How wonderful to study Your Body
Consecrated with His Blood.
From the start you held Grace in your womb
You continue to share it with us.
So Blessed are You, Our Mother
Queen of Heaven and Earth.
God’s crown of creation.
For all women, you demonstrate our true worth.
