HYMN TO THE VIRGIN, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Thou, o virgin of the virgins
Last Line: Crowned, thou art reigning.
Subject(s): Mary. Mother Of Jesus; Women - Bible; Virgin Mary

Thou, O Virgin of the virgins,
Star and flower of the sea!
Bearing up the lamp of men, --
Shrine of purity!
Mary, fountain of remission,
Fountain sweet of honey-dew,
Fountain of forgiving mercy;
Mingler and dispenser too
Of delightful sweetness;
Gate of splendor's king,
In all excellence of beauty
Stars out-glorying!
At the summit of the poles,
Crowned, thou art reigning.
