The Lord, whom earth, and air, and sea,
With one adoring voice resound;
Who rules them all in majesty,
In Mary’s heart a cloister found.
Lo! in a humble Virgin’s womb,
O’ershadowed by Almighty power;
He whom the stars, and sun, and moon,
Each serve in their appointed hour.
O Lord, to you be lasting praise,
O Jesus, born the Virgin’s Son,
With Father and with Holy Ghost,
While everlasting ages run. Amen.
