C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Song of the “Marner”
Anonymous
 
Translation of Edgar Taylor

    MARIA! Virgin! mother! comforter
    Of sinners! queen of saints in heaven that are!
    Thy beauty round the eternal throne doth cast
    A brightness that outshines its living rays;
      There in the fullness of transcendent joy        5
      Heaven’s King and thou sit in bright majesty:
        Would I were there, a welcomed guest at last
    Where angel tongues re-echo praise to praise!
    There Michael sings the blessed Savior’s name,
      Till round the eternal throne it rings once more,        10
    And angels in their choirs with glad acclaim,
      Triumphant host, their joyful praises pour;
There thousand years than days more short appear,
Such joy from God doth flow and from that mother dear.
