MARIAN SYMPHONY NO. 6 / by Joseph Castorino


Mother Most Pure, we greatly need the

  Good God to swiftly send you to us;

With your smooth, gentle, grace-full

  Hands, pour His love into our hearts.


Refresh the green garden of our souls

  With the living water of the Spirit;

Through the infusion of His holy joy,

  May our lives bountifully bloom.


The snow-tipped peaks of the Heavenly

  Mountain ranges ring with rejoicing;

The communion of saints collects in a crowd

  Multitudinous, and sings to our Savior.


Dear Lady, ask the Lord to barricade and

   Block all roads leading to temptation;

Pray that He obliterates all paths that

  Plunge into the abyss of mortal sin.
