ONE IN JOYFUL SONGS OF PRAISE:
One in joyful songs of praise, Let us pass from mournful days To thy
Paschal mysery: "God arose who lived in thee! O Virgin Mary.
Now rejoice we at the sight Of thy Son in Easter light; Mother, let
thy risen King, Rise in us a living spring, O Virgin Mary.
All the earth and heavens vie To reecho Mary's joy; We are crowned
with thee in grace, Sinless flower of our race, O Virgin Mary.
Ever Blessed Trinity, Undivided Unity, Let thy grace through Mary flow
On God's children here below. O Virgin Mary.
