She knows a comfort deeper still
For all who fare on pilgrimage;
By suffering from age to age
God seals the vassals of His Will.
Her Burden is upholding her;
And, guided by the Holy Dove,
She sees the victory of Love
Beyond the Cross and Sepulchre.
To shield her, Joseph stands; his care
The shadow of God’s Providence.
How fragrant is the frankincense
Of their uninterrupted prayer!
