The Assumption

The ark which God has sanctified,

Which He has filled with grace,

Within the temple of the Lord

Has found a resting-place.

More glorious than the seraphim,

This ark of love divine,

Corruption could not blemish her

Whom death could not confine.

God-bearing Mother, Virgin chaste,

Who shines in heaven's sight;

She wears a royal crown of stars

Who is the door of Light.

To Father, Son and Spirit blest

may we give endless praise

With Mary, who is Queen of heaven,

Through everlasting days.
