THE MOZARABIC LITURGY Song For Our Lady's Assumption

As the tower of David art thou, O Mary,
And in thee there is no flaw,
How beautiful and lovely art thou in the adorning,
And the odor of thy ointments
Is like the fragarance of Libanus,
Above all perfume.....

Like a dove brooding over swelling waters,
Like vials that pour out perfumed oil,
Like lilies distilling their fragarance,
Like the golden vessels of Tharsis,
Like the choice Libanus and the cedar tree,
Like fair tall columns of marble
Set upon bases of gold, art thou, O Mary!

How beautiful and how lovely!

*The Mozarabic Rite, also called the Visigothic Rite or Hispanic Rite, is a form of Catholic worship within the Latin Church of the Catholic Church, and in the Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church. Its beginning dates to the 7th century, and is localized in the Iberian Peninsula (Hispania). The "Mozarabs" is a scholarly term for the Christians living under Muslim rulers in Al-Andalus. The Mozarabic Rite's origins predates the Al-Andalus and Visigothic periods. The rite was superseded by the Roman Rite as part of a wider programme of liturgical standardization within the Catholic Church.
