See the beauty of the daughter of Jerusalem, who ascended to
heaven like the rising sun at dawn.
The ark which God has sanctified,
Which He has filled with
Within the temple of the Lord
Has found a resting-place.
than the seraphim,
This ark of love divine,
Corruption could not blemish her
death could not confine.
God-bearing Mother, Virgin chaste,
Who shines in
She wears a royal crown of stars
Who is the door of Light.
To Father, Son and Spirit blest
may we give endless praise
With Mary, who is Queen of heaven,
Through everlasting days.
(from Stanbrook Abbey Hymnal)
