O chosen one of the Lord,
how well you answered His call,
giving yourself entirely
to the angel’s word
and so conceiving in your womb
the salvation of the world –
pray, O Spouse of the Holy Spirit,
that His voice might inspire in us
your same commitment to the Word of God
and its working in our lives;
pray the Son be conceived in us as well
that we too might serve
to bring His salvation forth
into the light of this day.
How shall we give ourselves
completely to the Lord
without your prayers, dear Mother,
without your blessed intercession…?
O pray we shall follow in your wake
and add our ‘yes’ to your own,
that the Lord may indeed work in us,
that He might make His home in us
and we come to our home in Heaven.
