Daily Daily, Sing to Mary

Daily, Daily, Sing to Mary

Omni Die dic Mariae
Cento on a poem of St. Bernard, d. 1153
St. Casimir, d. 1484. Tr. Henry Bittleston, d. 1886, alt.

Corner's Gesangbuch, 1631
Arr. W.S. Rockstro, d. 1895

Daily, daily, sing to Mary, Sing, my soul, her praises due:
All her feasts, her actions honour, With the heart's devotion true.

Now in wond'ring contemplation, Be her majesty confessed; 
Call her Mother, call her Virgin, Happy Mother, Virgin blest.

She is mighty to deliver; Call her, trust her lovingly;
When the tempest rages round thee, She will calm the troubled sea.

Gifts of heaven she has given, Noble Lady, to our race; 
She the Queen who decks her subjects With the lights of God's own grace.

Sing, my tongue, the Virgin's trophies, Who for us her Maker bore;
For the curse of old inflicted, Peace and blessing to restore.

Sing in songs of praise unending, Sing the world's majestic Queen;
Weary not, nor fail in telling All the gifts she gives to men.

Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Anne, Therese, I love You; Save Souls!

Jesu mitis et humilis corde, Fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum. (ter)

Deus propitius esto mihi peccatori
