A CANTICLE LIKE THAT OF THE THREE CHILDREN

Bless, all works, our glorious Lady: praise and superexalt her forever.

Bless our Lady, ye Angels: ye heavens, bless our Lady.

Let every creature bless our Lady: whom the King wishes thus to be blessed.

Blessed be thou, O daughter of the most High King: who by thy fragrance
surpassest all lilies.

Blessed be thou, crown of all ladies: blessed be thou, glory of Jerusalem.

Thy odor is like a full field which the Lord hath blessed: which overflows
on those who bless thee, watering their whole souls and minds.

Whosoever shall bless thee, O Blessed Virgin: let him be blessed forever.

He who shall curse thee, O most white rose: let him be accursed.

Let not the abundance of wine and oil: depart from the house of thy
servants.

In thy name let every knee bow: in Heaven, on earth, and in hell.

Let us bless God, who hath created thee: blessed be both thy parents who
have begotten thee.

Blessed be thou, O Lady, in Heaven and on earth: worthy of praise, and
glorious and superexalted forever.

Glory be to the Father, etc.
