Hail, Thou Star Of Ocean

Hail, thou star of ocean!
portal of the sky!
Ever virgin Mother
of the Lord Most High!

Oh! by Gabriel’s Ave,
Uttered long ago
Eva’s name reversing,
‘Stablished peace below.

Break the captives’ fetters;
Light on blindness pour,
All our ills expelling,
every bliss implore.

Show thyself a Mother,
Offer Him our sighs,
Who for us incarnate
Did not thee despise.

Virgin of all virgins!
To thy shelter take us;
Gentlest of the gentle!
Chase and gentle make us.

Still as on we journey
Help our weak endeavour;
Till with thee and Jesus
We rejoice forever.

Through the highest heaven,
To the Almighty Three,
Father, Son and Spirit,
One same glory be.
