HYMN, FR. BEATRICE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Hush! Oh ye billows
Last Line: Mary, be kind!


HUSH! oh ye billows,
Hush! oh thou wind,
Watch o'er us, angels,
Mary, be kind!

Fishermen followed
The steps of the Lord;
Oft in their fishing boats
Preached He the Word.

Pray for us, Pietro,
Pray for us, John,
Pray for us, Giacomo,
Zebedee's son.

If it be stormy,
Fear not the sea;
Jesus upon it
Is walking by thee.

Billows, be gentle,
Soft blow the wind,
Watch o'er us, angels,
Mary, be kind!

Soft be the billows,
Gentle the wind,
Angels watch over thee,
Mary, be kind!
