Mary the Dawn

Mary the Dawn, 
Christ the Perfect Day;
Mary the Gate, 
Christ the Heav’nly Way!
Mary the Root, 
Christ the Mystic Vine;
Mary the Grape, 
Christ the Sacred Wine!
Mary the Wheat-sheaf, 
Christ the Living Bread;
Mary the Rose-Tree, 
Christ the Rose Blood-red!
Mary the Font, 
Christ the Cleansing Flood;
Mary the Chalice, 
Christ the Saving Blood!
Mary the Temple, 
Christ the Temple’s Lord;
Mary the Shrine, 
Christ the God adored!
Mary the Beacon, 
Christ the Haven’s Rest;
Mary the Mirror, 
Christ the Vision Blest!
Mary the Mother, 
Christ the Mother’s Son.
Both ever blest while endless ages run.
