Mother of Christ, you are the treasured
Tabernacle of the Most High;
The brilliant Sun magnificently shines
Forth from you in spiritual direction.
Pray that we may be poor in spirit,
Surrendering to Christ the Compassionate;
Pray that we may be pure in heart,
Like the precious Poverello of Assisi.
Your luminous light-brown hair cascades
Over your shoulders like a waterfall;
Your radiant smile lights up my soul,
As I hold your soft, gentle hand.
You lead me in His holy footsteps, showing
Me the short way, the easy way, to Jesus;
From the depths of my soul I love you,
My Heavenly guide, my darling friend.
