Mary, how Sweetly.

Mary! how sweetly falls that word
On my enraptured ear!
Oft do I breathe in accents low
That sound, when none are near.
Sing, O my lips, and loudly proclaim.
O Mary, how sweet is thy name!

Sweet as the warbling of a bird,
Sweet as the mother's voice;
So sweet to me is that dear name,
It makes my heart rejoice.
Sing, O my lips, and loudly proclaim.
O Mary, how sweet is thy name!

Bright as the glittering stars appear,
Bright as the moonbeams shine;
So bright, in my mind's eye, is seen
Thy loveliness divine.
Sing, O my lips, and loudly proclaim.
O Mary, how sweet is thy name!

Through thee I offer my requests;
And when my prayer is done,
In ecstasy sublime I see
Thee seated near thy Son.
Sing, O my lips, and loudly proclaim.
O Mary, how sweet is thy name!

Look Down, O Mother Mary
















Begin the Rosary by Clicking on the proper day of the week.

Look down, O Mother Mary
Look down, O Mother Mary,
From thy bright throne above,
Cast down upon thy children,
One only glance of love;
And if a heart so tender
With pity flows not o'er,
Then turn away, O Mother,
And look on us no more.

See how, ungrateful sinners,
We stand before thy Son;
His loving heart upbraids us
The evil we have done.
But if thou wilt appease Him,
Speak for us but one word;
Thou only canst obtain us
The pardon of our Lord.

O Mary, dearest Mother,
If thou wouldst have us live,
Say that we are thy children,
And Jesus will forgive.
Our sins make us unworthy
That title still to bear;
But thou art still a Mother,-
Then show a Mother's care.

Unfold to us thy mantle;
There stay we without fear;
What evil can befall us
If, Mother, thou art near?
Oh, kindest, dearest Mother,
Thy sinful children save!
Look down on us with pity.
Who thy protection crave.
