Noel of Children of Mary - Saint Louis de Montfort

1. Dear children of Mary,

Praise the Lord

For He has filled her

With grace and gentleness.

She just gave birth to this adorable Lord,

Let’s all go to congratulate her,

Let’s humbly go to visit

This admirable Mother.

2. O marvelous Virgin,

O wondrous prodigy,

O blessed Mother,

Your happiness is great;

Ours is also, you give us life

Since you break our bonds,

You shower us with a thousand blessings,

May you be praised!

3. Finally the prophecies

Of the Old Testament

Have been accomplished

In your giving birth.

Heaven receives through you a new glory,

You crush the head of the devil,

And you obtain forgiveness

For the faithless sinner.

4. Offering no resistance,

You have achieved by your consent

What the whole world

So ardently desired.

May we glorify, honor and praise your faith!

The Savior came to us

Only because you believed

The word of an angel.

5. How charming you are

In your purity!

How powerful you are

In your humility!
