A Lady That Was So Fair And Bright Lyrics
1. A lady that was so fair and bright,
Velut maris stella,
Brought forth Jesu full of might,
Parens et puella.
2. Lady, flower of alle thing,
Rosa sine spina,
That barest Jesu, Heaven-King,
3. All this worlde was forlore,
Till that Jesu was ybore,
De te, genetrice.
4. Of all women thou art best,
To all weary thou art rest,
5. Well I wot He is thy Son,
Ventre quem portasti;
There will He grant thee thy boon,
Infans quem lactasti.
6. How sweet He is, how meek He is
In heaven He is and heaven(ly) bliss
7. Of all women thou bearest the prize,
Grant us alle Paradise,
