And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered. And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads, and ten horns: and on his head seven diadems: And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered; that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her son. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her son was taken up to God, and to his throne. (Apoc 12:1)
Holy Mary, now we crown you, Honored Queen of all our race; Noble Virgin, may our tribute Win your love and gain us grace.
On this day we sing your praises, Purest maid of all the earth; While the beauty of the springtime Tells your joy at Jesus’ birth.
Stain of sin has never marred you, Nature’s only spotless bloom; God, whose might exceeds the heavens, You have sheltered in your womb.
Glorious Queen, look down in kindness While before your throne we stand; Bring God’s blessing to your children; Watch our homes and guard our land.
Gate of heaven, you were Mother To the King of heaven and earth; Now be Mother to your subjects, In our souls give Jesus birth.
Queen of heaven, while creation Speaks the grandeur of God’s love, Mold our hearts to seek his glory Till we reach our home above. (Song I remember singing as a kid in Parochial School)
