Ave! Mary, Full Of Grace 
'For Candlemas'

1._A-ve! Ma-ry, full _ of grace,
In whose vir-_ gin arms’ em-brace
God to God him-self doth vow:
Let me in the tem-_ ple wait,
Let me meet _ thee at the gate,
Je-su, for mine All art thou.

2._God is to his tem-_ ple come;
An-gels throng the hal-low’d dome;
What be-yond hath heav’n in store?
God him-self our flesh _ doth wear,
Owns a Vir-gin-Mo-ther’s care;
This than heav’n it-self is more.

3._In-cense-gales _ of glad-ness rise,
Where this mor-_ ning sa-_ cri-fice
‘Mid re-e-choing shouts is made
E-ve-ning’s rite in tears shall end,
And with bit-_ ter wee-_ pings blend,
On the dark’-ning Cross dis-play’d.
4._There be-hold the_Ob-la-tion wrought,
By whose pre-cious ran-som bought,
We are all to God made nigh:
Now no lon-ger, Lord, our own,
To thy sing-le ser-vice won,
Thine we live, and thine we die.

5._Let thy ser-vants now de-part;
May we see thee as thou art;
Nought of earth ar-rest our eyes!
If thou keep us here be-low,
Let us here with Je-sus grow,
And in him here-af-ter rise.
