Holy Virgin of Virgins, the foolish enemy
Feverishly and frantically pursues me;
Bravely brandish the sword of the Spirit,
And courageously cut him down.
Scatter his seditious stratagems, and
Utterly destroy his devilish plans;
Through your lovely, delicate hands,
May my prayers arise to Jesus’ throne.
The humble beauty of your sweet smile
Eclipses the light of both sun and moon;
Your pristine prayers for me perfume
Highest Heaven with the fragrance of roses.
Ask the Father to teach me truth: that holy
Devotion is possible in any profession;
Quiet queen, ignite the little candle
Of my heart with the fire of compassion.
