A CANTICLE LIKE THAT OF EZECHIAS (IS. XXXVIII)

I have said in the midst of my days: I will go to Mary, that she may
reconcile me to Christ.

I have sought the residue of my years: in the bitterness of my soul.

My generation is taken away: because my father and mother and all have
forsaken me: but Mary hath taken me up.

I hoped in her in the morning, in the evening, and at midday: as a lion she
hath broken all the bones of my sins.

And thou, O Lady, hast delivered my soul, that it should not be lost: and
my only one from the hand of the dog.

Glory be to the Father, etc.
