Text by Hermann the Cripple, 1013-1054, monk at Reichenau in the Lake of Constance. Melody in fifth (Lydian) mode. This is the liturgical Antiphon in honor of the Blessed Virgin for the season of Advent and Christmas.

DIRECTIONS

Blessed Mother of the Savior,
thou art the gate leading us to heaven,
and Star of the Sea, aid thy falling people,
help all those who seek to rise again.
Thou who art the Mother, all nature wondering,
to thy Lord, thy own Creator: Virgin before, Virgin forever,
from Gabriel's mouth thou didst hear that blessed Ave,
on us poor sinners take pity.
