Bright Queen of Heaven! God's Virgin Spouse!
The glad world's blessed maid!
Whose beauty tied life to thy house,
And brought us saving aid.

Thou art the true Loves-knot; by thee
God is made our ally,
And man's inferior essence he
With his did dignify.

For coalescent by that band
We are his body grown,
Nourished with favours from his hand
Whom for our head we own.

And such a Knot, what arm dares loose,
What life, what death can sever?
Which us in him, and him in us
United keeps for ever.
