God from all eternity
Made thee, Mary , fair and free;
Stains of sin are not in thee.
Fairest woman, thou’rt alone
White as snow on Lebanon ;
And thy face is like the sun.
Virgin, hear the ages tell
All thy praise in Israel ;
Hear thy people praise thee well.
God thy maker knows thy worth;
He has blessed thee from thy birth;
Blessed thee more than all on earth
Where thy fragrant beauty leads
One among the lilies feeds.
Draw us to the dewy meads
