The following is a Christmas hymn written by Saint Louis de Montfort.


Noel of the Children of Mary


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.
