Subject(s): Mary. Mother Of Jesus; Women In The Bible; Virgin Mary


In that (O Queen of queens) thy birth was free
From guilt, which others doth of grace bereave,
When in their mother's womb they life receive,
God as his sole-born daughter loved thee.
To match thee like thy birth's nobility,
He thee his Spirit for thy spouse did leave,
Of whom thou didst his only Son conceive,
And so wast linked to all the Trinity.
Cease then, O queens, who earthly crowns do wear,
To glory in the pomp of worldly things!
If men such high respect unto you bear,
Which daughters, wives and mothers are of kings,
What honour should unto that Queen be done,
Who had your God for father, spouse and son?
