    Feast of The Assumption

    (15TH AUG )

    We hail you, Mother Mary! mild and meek
    High over all archangels glorified
    The Queen of Heaven, and mankind’s hope and pride
    To you, our Mother! trustingly we speak.
    God’s masterpiece! Perfection’s human peak!
    Gentle, immaculate! We hasten to-day
    To celebrate your Assumption and to pray
    To you for help; for, Mother! we are weak.

    Out of this vale of tears, out of its pain
    Out of its vice and woe, to you we fly
    We pray to you, to whom none prays in vain,
    O, be our advocate when death is nigh.
    One glance from you will melt His Sacred Heart,
    And He will not condemn us to depart.


    Foremass Lower, Sixmilecross, Co. Tyrone.
