PSALM LVIII

Deliver me from mine enemies, O Lady of the world: arise to meet me, O
Queen of piety.

The purest gold is thy ornament: the sardine stone and the topaz are thy
diadem.

The jasper and the amethyst are in thy right hand: the beryl and the
chrysolite in thy left.

The hyacinths are on thy breast: shining carbuncles are the jewels of thy
bracelets.

Myrrh, frankincense, and balsam are on thy hands: the sapphire and the
emerald on thy fingers.

Glory be to the Father, etc.
