PSALM LXXIX

Give ear to me, thou who rulest Israel: praise thy Mother with me.

Arise and shake thyself from the dust, O my soul: go forth to meet the
Queen of Heaven.

Loose the bands of thy neck, O poor little soul of mine: and welcome her
with glorious praises.

The odor of life comes forth from her: and all salvation springs out of her
heart.

By the sweet fragrance of her spiritual gifts: dead souls are raised to
life.

Glory be to the Father, etc.
