Hymn to the Virgin

13th Century

1. Of on that is so fayre and bright
Velut maris stella,
Brighter than the day is light,
Parens et puella:
Ic crie to thee, thou see to me,
Levedy, preye thi Sone for me
Tam pia,
That ic mote come to thee.
Maria.

2. Levedy, flour of alle thing,
Rosa sine spina,
Thou bare Jhesu, hevene king,
Gratia divina:
Of alle thu berst the pris,
Levedy, quene of paradys,
Electa:
Mayde milde, Moder es Effecta.
es Effecta.
