Hail, You Star of the Ocean

Hail, you Star of the Ocean!

Portal of the sky,

Ever Virgin Mother,

Of the Lord most high.

O! by Gabriel's Ave,

Uttered long ago,

Eva's name reversing,

Establish peace below.

Break the captive's fetters;

Light on blindness pour;

All our ills expelling,

Ev'ry bliss implore.

Show yourself a mother;

Offer him our sighs,

Who for us Incarnate

Did not you despise.

Virgin of all virgins!

To your shelter take us;

Gentlest of the gentle!

Chaste and gentle make us.

Still as on we journey,

Help our weak endeavor,

Till with you and Jesus

We rejoice forever.

Through the highest heaven,

To the Almighty Three,

Father, Son, and Spirit,

One same glory be.

Like this service?

Consider buying us a cup of coffee, It'll REALLY help us improve it and keep it free. Thanks in advance and GOD BLESS YOU!
