HAIL, FULL OF GRACE

In fullness is no static state of being
Nor yet suffices that container be
Enlarged for more grace by each grace's giving
Its whole return in love to graced design.

By more expansion of you, Mary, danger
Of overspill grows greater with each pouring
From zest of God's exuberant donation
Of grace where grace is fast absorbed and spent.

We come to save you, inundated Mother,
From floods of grace high rising in your soul.
Here with cupped hearts we kneel to beg a drenching.

Hail, Mary, full of grace, spill grace on us.
