Catholic Activity: Marian Hymn: ’Tis Said of Our Dear Lady

Here is the text to a beautiful hymn to Our Lady, that can be sung on any of her feast days. This is an old invocation when one is on a pilgrimage to Our Blessed Lady. The text and melody are from the hymn book of Nikolaus Büttner, 1602.

DIRECTIONS

1. ’Tis said of Our dear lady, a holy dream had she:
Beneath her heart unspotted there grew a lovely tree. Kyrie eleison.

2. Then Our most Blessed Lady a tiny Child did bear,
So let us now with singing our happiness declare. Kyrie eleison.
