1 Daily, daily, sing to Mary,
Sing my soul, her praises due:
All her feasts, her actions honor,
With the heart's devotion true.
2 Now in wond'ring contemplation,
Be her majesty confessed;
Call her Mother call her Virgin,
Happy Mother, Virgin blest.
3 She is mighty to deliver;
Call her, trust her lovingly;
When the tempest rages 'round thee,
She will calm the troubled sea.
4 Gifts of heaven she has given,
Noble Lady, to our race;
She the Queen who decks her subjects
With the lights of God's own grace.
5 Sing, my tongue, the Virgin's trophies,
Who for us her Maker bore;
For the curse of old inflicted,
Peace and blessing to restore.
6 Sing in songs of praise unending,
Sing the world's majestic Queen;
Weary not, nor fail in telling
All the gifts she gives to men.
1 Daily, daily sing to Mary,
Sing, my soul, her praises due:
All her feasts, her actions honor
With the heart's devotion true.
Lost in wond'ring contemplation,
Be her majesty confessed:
Call her Mother, call her Virgin,
Happy Mother, Virgin blest.
 
2 She is mighty in her pleading,
Tender in her loving care;
Ever watchful, understanding,
All our sorrows she will share.

Advocate and loving mother,
Mediatrix of all grace:
Heaven's blessings she dispenses
On our sinful human race.
 
3 All our graces flow through Mary;
All then join her praise to sing:
Fairest work of all creation,
Mother of creation's King.
Sing in songs of peace unending,
Call upon her lovingly:
Seat of wisdom, Gate of heaven,
Morning star upon the sea.

Posted on YouTube: yet another tune.
This lovely Marian hymn owes it's text to a 12th century poem of St Bernard. Mary is our eternal mother, drawing us closer to God through Jesus.
My mother passed away last week and I played this at her funeral. Some days when awareness was all but lost I would take out my rosary and put it in her hands, she always began to pray aloud right away. Her speech was quiet and perfect in prayer. What a beautiful gift we have in the Blessed Virgin.
I feel sorry for those who think that Catholics worship Mary, or images and statues of her. They lose so much by conjuring up fictional theology, or they listen to many a lost Catholic who do not understand their own doctrine. Hardness of heart keeps them from knowing a mother who's love is beyond comprehension.
I still have such vivid mental images of my maternal grandmother meditating on the mysteries of Christ though the rosary. Perhaps even more touching are the memories of my paternal grandmother, not Catholic , who had a significant devotion to Mary and prayed the rosary daily. In those days many Protestants had no fear of showing their love for the Virgin. Satan hates the rosary and works hard to keep us from Mary. After all it was her yes to God that set in motion his defeat at the hands of her son Jesus.
