|The Holy Catholic Church|
Oh, Bride of Christ, youíre beautiful ! |
So radiant your face!
Crowned in love by holy priests,
Your raiment spun of grace.
Attended to by angel choirs
That ever sing your praise,
The Mother of the blessed saints
Who wisely chose your ways.
Protector of the Eucharist,
Beloved of the Queen,
The keeper of the Flame of Faith,
The door to truths unseen.
Pure Flower of the Spring of Life,
The soulís sweet lullaby.
Oh, Godís most gracious gift to man
Through you how blest am I !
