Sing of Mary - lyrics
Sing of Mary

Sing of Mary pure and lowly, virgin mother undefiled.
Sing of Jesus, son of Mary, who became 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.

Sing of Jesus, son of Mary, in the home at Nazareth.
Toil and labor can not weary love enduring unto death.
Constant was the love he gave her, though he went forth from her side,
Forth to preach and heal and suffer, til on Calvary he died.

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 re-echos until earths remotest ends.


Memorare 

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it know that anyone
Who fled to your protection, implored your intercession or asked for help was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence I fly to you, O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother,
To you I come, before you I stand full of sin and sorrow.

O Mother, O Mother, of the Incarnate Word, despise not my petition.
O Mother, O Mother, in your mercy hear and answer me.


Flower of Carmel

O Beautiful flower of Carmel, most fruitful vine,
Splendor of Heaven, Holy and Singular, mother mine,
Who brought forth the son of God, remaining a virgin pure.

Star of the Sea, help and protect me.  Show me that you are my mother.
Holy Mary, without sin conceived, show me you are my mother.
Pray for us who have recourse to thee.

Mother of God and our mother, pray for us.
Queen of the heavens and earth, we ask from the bottom of our hearts,
For nothing can withstand, your powerful help for man.

Virgin and flower of Carmel, hear us and pray for us, O pray for us.
For all of us wearing your scapular, o patroness, pray for us, O pray for us.
St. Joseph, friend of the Sacred Heart, hear us and pray for us, pray for us.
St. Joseph, chaste spouse of Mary, our patron, O pray for us, pray for us.

(Beautiful flower of Carmel, most fruitful vine,
Slendor of Heaven, Holy and Singular, who
Brought for the Son of God, remaining a virgin pure,
Show me that you are my mother.)


Hail Mary/Gentle Woman (by Carey Landry)

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you.  Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death.  Amen.

Gentle woman, quiet light, morning star, so strong and bright.  Gentle women, peaceful dove, teach us wisdom, teach us love.
You were chosen by the Father, you were chosen for the Son, you were chosen from all women and for woman, shining one.
Blessed are you of all women, blessed in turn, all women too.  Blessed they with peaceful spirits.  Blessed are they with gentle hearts.


Great Things

My soul magnifies the Lord.  My spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
He has looked with favor on me, on me his lowly servant.
My soul magnifies the Lord.  My spirit rejoices in God my Savior
From now on all will call me blessed throughout all generations.

Rejoice in the Lord and bless his holy name.
Holy, holy is the name of the Lord, the Name of our God Almighty.
The Almighty has done great things for me.
The Almighty has done great things for me.

His mercy is for every soul who fears him throughout every generation.
He has shown his mighty arm and has scattered the proud of heart.
He has torn the mighty down and has lifted up and exalted the humble.
He has sent the rich away and filled the hungry with good things.

Rejoice in his mercy, he's remembered his servant Israel.
As he spoke to Abraham and to his seed forever (and ever and ever).
The Almighty has done great things for me.
The Almighty has done great things for me.

Rejoice in the Lord and bless his holy name.
Holy, holy is the name of the Lord, the Name of our God Almighty.
For ever holy is his Kingdom to come in the GREAT THINGS He's done for me.
The Almighty has done great things for me.
The Almighty has done great things for me.
The Almighty has done great things for me.
The Almighty has done great things for me.

Lovely Lady Dressed in Blue (Words by Mary Dixon Thayer)

Lovely Lady Dressed in Blue, teach me how to pray.
God was once your little boy, tell me what to say.
Did you lift Him up sometimes gently on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way that my mother does to me?

Did you hold His hand at night? 
Did you ever try telling stories of the world?
Oh, and did He cry?
Do you really think he cares if I tell Him things,
Little things that happen?
And do the angel's wings make a noise?

Can He hear me if I speak low?
Can He understand me now, you know?
Lovely Lady tell me for you know.


On This Day, O Beautiful Mother

On this day, O beautiful Mother, on this day we give thee our love.
Near thee, Madonna, fondly we hover, Trusting thy gentle care to prove.

On this day we ask to share, Dearest Mother, thy sweet care;
Aid us ere our feet a stray.  Wander from thy guiding way.

Queen of angels, deign to hear Lisping children's humble prayer;
Young hearts gain, O virgin pure, Sweetly to thyself allure.


Salve Regina

Salve Regina, mater miseri cordiae; Vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve, (Salve Regina)
Ad te clamamus, exsules, filii Hevae.  Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle.  (Salve Regina, Ave Maria, Gratia plena, Salve)
Eia ergo, Advocata nostra,
illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte.  (Salve Regina)
Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.  (Salve Regina) O clemens, (Ave Maria)
O pia,  (Gratia plena) O dulcis Virgo Maria. (Salve Regina)
