1.) Tabernacle pure of the Lord most High,
O Mary, vessel of lowliness;
Virgin bearing Eternal Light,
O Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.

 

2.) Root of Jesse, Gate of Morn,
O Mary, certain way to holiness;
You whence the world's true Light was born,
O Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.

 

3.) Mary, you who bore your own Creator;
Mary, you Mothered your Eternal Lord.
Mary, Theotokos, Bearer of God:
Mary, Mother of all holiness;
Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.



4.) Mother of the birth of Eternity in time,
O Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.
Woman revealing the Face of Christ,
O Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.

 

5.) Mother of Good Counsel, Sister to us all;
Seat of Wisdom: teacher of your Saviour Boy.
Refuge of sinners, Gentle call;
O Mary, grant us your peace and your joy.

 

6.) Blessed Host, Enchantment of all heaven:
Though Your Beauty be clothed and veiled,
Hidden and captive in a Crumb of Bread,
Simple faith tears away the Sacred Veil;
Simple faith tears away the Sacred Veil.

 

7.) Gate of Heaven, Morning Star,
O Mary, show to us your loveliness;
Virgin bearing Eternal Light,
O Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.

 

8.) Queen of Angels, Queen of Saints,
O Mary, perfect way to holiness;
Queen of God's Own holy Grace,
O Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.

 

9.) Mary, you my sweetest Mother,
I give you my soul, my body, and my heart.
Be the tender guardian of my poor life.
In my hour of death, calm the final strife.
In my hour of death, calm the final strife.

 

10.) Mystical Gate, through which passes the Lord,
O Mary, honoured Daughter of our race.
Ransomed nations praise and adore
The Messiah, Son of Mary, in the Eucharist.

 

11.) "Tell me who you are and what you want of me,"
O Mary, you the fair Immaculata.
Ave Maria, Ave Maria!
O Mary, you, Immaculata!

 

12.) Jesus, Lord, You Source of all Beauty;
My Creator, show me Your loving Face.
Eucharistic Jesus, Root of my faith:
Jesus, You the Melody of all my song;
Jesus, You the Melody of all my song.
