THE KNOT

Bright Queen of Heaven! God's Virgin Spouse!

The glad world's blesséd Maid!

Whose beauty tied life to thy house139139Apparently, whose beauty of soul caused the Life of mankind to dwell in thee.,

And brought us saving aid;

Thou art the true Love's-Knot; by thee

GOD is made our ally;

And man's inferior essence He

With His did dignify.

For coalescent by that band

We are His body grown,

Nourish'd with favours from His hand,

Whom for our Head we own.

And such a knot, what arm dares loose,

What life, what death can sever?

Which us in Him, and Him in us,

United keeps for ever.
