MARIAN SYMPHONY NO. 7 / by Joseph Castorino


Mother Most Chaste, I will always love

  You as my generous, gentle guide;

Our Father in Heaven has healed my

  Troubled heart through your holy hands.


I honor you, Jesus’ happy helper, who

  Wishes to bring harmony into my life;

Dear amiable advocate, pray that your

  Son will strengthen me against evil.


Let me sip of the cool refreshment

  Of your spouse, the Holy Spirit;

As the Messiah’s mother, you teach me

  The path that leads to total truth.


Marvelous Madonnina, let your dulcet

  Voice rise to God on our behalf;

Please petition His Divine Majesty, that

  He may annihilate all affection for sin.
