Mother of Divine Grace, ever so kindly
Preserve me in humble piety and patience;
Ask the gentle Jesus to pour upon me
His heavenly hope and gladdening grace.
You merit praise for being a perfect mirror,
Reflecting His merciful compassion;
Because of you, divine favors fall upon me
Like starry raindrops from the sky.
I am a little candle in the cave, and the
Birth of the blessed Babe is mystical to me;
Pray that your sovereign Son will help me
To be single-hearted in the Spirit.
The Timeless One is triumphantly shoehorned
Into Time, and He totally transfigures it;
Guide me and show me how to live in the
Eternal present of the loving Lamb.
