A Poem for Mary, Immaculate Conception

La Immaculata

Mother dear, we gather here
To praise you on this blessed day.
Heaven deigned to bestow on thee
The greatest gift for all humanity.

To be a living tabernacle
For Jesus our King!
Born without stain of sin and sorrow
To bring hearts to Jesus, and glorify his reign.

May the rosary never be tedious
In our daily life of prayer
As we pick roses from Heaven's garden
At your feet, we lay to bear

Through the pains of this earthly life
Keep our heads turned to the light
That through every loss and burden
Bear with joy, and hope, love and care.

O mother beautiful and loving
Make in my soul a gentle stirring
Advent's waiting hour at hand
Strive to reach our Heaven homeland.
