Lyrics

The God whom earth, and sea, and sky,
Adore, and laud, and magnify,
Who o’er their threefold fabric reigns,
The virgin’s spotless womb contains.
O Mother blest, the chosen shrine
Wherein the architect divine,
Whose hand contains the earth and sky,
Has come in human flesh to lie!
O Lord, the Virgin-born, to you
Eternal praise and laud are due,
Whom with the Father we adore
And Holy Spirit evermore.
Blest in the message Gabriel brought;
Blest by the work the Spirit wrought;
Most blest, to bring to human birth
The long desired of all the earth.
