Sung on various Marian feasts throughout the liturgical year, this hymn lauds Mary, locus of God's presence, her preservation from sin, and her motherhood of all God's children.

Text: Stanbrook
Melody: Plainsong
Organist: Fr Columba McCann OSB

Mary crowned with living light,
temple of the Lord,
place of peace and holiness,
shelter of the Word.

Mystery of sinless life
in our fallen race,
free from shadow you reflect
plenitude of grace.

Virgin, mother of our God,
lift us when we fall,
who were named upon the cross
mother of us all.

Father, Son and Spirit blest,
heaven sings your praise;
Mary magnifes your name
through eternal days.
