With what a glorious light you shine,
daughter of David,
You are the jewel
that shows us the heritage
the Father has for us.
Even the angels learn the wisdom of God
as they see his plan realized in you,
brought into presence of the King
and clothed with splendor.
teach us how to praise the Almighty
and let us hear your voice
resounding through heaven:
“My soul magnifies the Lord!”
Let us see you,
totally abased before the Trinity
filled with gratitude
and joyful praise.
Then we will understand our own vocation
to be for the praise of his glory
and to rejoice in his mercy.
Looking at you
we know death is not the last word
over our being but rather,
he who is mighty
has done great things for us
and holy is his name.
