REJOICE, O MARY, HEAVENLY QUEEN


1 Rejoice, O Mary, heav'nly Queen;
Now clouds give way to Sunlight's beams,
Allelúia!
The Offspring of thy Virgin womb,
Is risen from the virgin tomb,
Allelúia! Allelúia! Allelúia!
2 Death's arrows keen are snapp'd in twain,
At Jesus' feet death lieth slain,
Allelúia!
Though bitterness endure a night,
It giveth joy with morning light,
Allelúia! Allelúia! Allelúia!
3 Christ's cross, whereon our debts are paid,
His Kingly scepter now is made.
Allelúia!
Rejoice, O Queen, in this thy day,
For Christ thy Sun now holds His sway,
Allelúia! Allelúia! Allelúia!
