O Maria Per la Madonna

Language: Latin

O Maria quam pulchra es, quam suavis, quam decora.
Tegit terram sicut nebula lumen ortum indeficiens
flamma ignis Arca federis inter spinas ortum lilium.
Tronum sion in Altissimis in columna nubis positum.
O Maria (...)
Ante saecula creata girum celi circuivit sola
profundum abissi penetravit
et in fluctibus maris ambulavit
omnium corda virtute calcavit
et in hereditate Domini morata est.
Tegit terram (...)
O Maria (...)

Ô Marie. Pour la Madonne

Language: French (Français) after the Latin

Ô Marie, que tu es belle, que tu es douce, que tu es parée.
Elle revêt la terre comme d'un nuage, une lumière qui se lève et ne s'éteint jamais,
une flamme, un feu, l'arche d'Alliance, un lys qui se lève au milieu des épines.
le trône de Sion au plus haut sur une colonne de nuages.
Ô Marie (...)
Avant la création des siècles, elle a marché seule sur le cercle des cieux,
elle a pénétré dans les profondeurs de l'abîme
et dans les flots marins elle a marché,
sur les cœurs de tous vertueusement elle a posé les pieds,
et dans l'héritage du Seigneur elle est restée.
Elle revêt la terre (...)
Ô Marie (...)
