Original text and translations
1. Sing of Mary, pure and lowly
Virgin mother undefiled,
Sing of God's own Son most holy,
Who be came her little child.
Fairest child of fairest mother,
God, the Lord, who came to earth,
Word made ﬂesh, our very brother,
Takes our nature by his birth.
2. Sing of Jesus, son of Mary,
In the home at Nazareth.
Toiland labor can not weary
Love enduring unto death.
Constant was the love he gave her,
Though he went forth from her side,
For to preach, and heal, and suffer,
Till on Calvary he died.
3. Glory be to God the Father;
Glory be to God the Son;
Glory be to God the Spirit;
Glory to the Three in One.
From the heart of blessed Mary,
From all saints the song ascends,
And the Church the strain reechoes
Unto earth's remotest ends.
