O Lady! it is by thee that our Lord became our brother and our Savior.
As the fire in the bush was ardent, and as the dew upon the fleece, by thee is descended the “Word of God.
The Holy Spirit has rendered thee fruitful, and the virtue of the Almighty has overshadowed thee.
Blessed be thy pure conception, blessed be thy virginal delivery!
Blessed be the purity of thy flesh; blessed be the sweet mercy of thy heart.
