The Assumption of Mary

Nick Alexander here... This is a lovely hymn in honor of today's solemnity: Who is She Ascends So High 75.75 Who is she ascends so high Next the heavenly King Round about whom angels fly And her praises sing? Who is she adorned with light Makes the sun her robe At whose feet the queen of night Lays her changing globe? This is she in whose pure wombe Heaven's Prince remained; Therefore in no earthly tomb Can she be contained Heaven she was, which held that fire Whence the world took light And to heaven doth now aspire Flames with flames t'unite. She that did so clearly shine When our day begun, See how bright her beams decline: Now she sits with the Son. -Sir John Beaumont, 1583-1627 Also, be sure to check out the Top Mary Songs List.
