TERESA’S SPIRIT ON THIS DAY (HYMN)

TERESA’S SPIRIT ON THIS DAY (HYMN)

Teresa’s spirit on this day

In beauty took its upward way,

Pure as a white and shining dove,

To heaven’s holy house above.

 

She heard the Bridegroom’s joyful cry:

Come, Sister, come from Carmel high

The marriage of the Lamb to share;

Receive thy crown of glory there.

 

O Jesus, Bridegroom of the Blest,

By all the Virgins’ choir confessed,

To thee forevermore belong

Their worship and their marriage song.

Amen.

 

– From: An Approved English Translation of the Breviarium Romanum, Burns & Oates, London, 1964
