The Holy Name of Mary

It Is the Name of Mary

It is the name of Mary,
Which we today proclaim,
Come all ye Mary’s children,
To sing that lovely name.
Come sing that name, dear children,
It is your mother’s own;
Unite your hearts and praises,
And waft them to her throne.
A name of pow’r and sweetness,
Her name to us so dear,
A name of awe and grandeur,
But grandeur free from fear.
Sweet name all strong yet tender,
That name we love so well,
The joy of earth and heaven,
The fear and dread of hell.

Taken from a little booklet I have entitled, “Novena in honor of Our Sorrowful Mother”, Compiled from Approved Sources and Arranged for Congregational Use by Rev. James R. Keane, O.S.M., published by The Servite Fathers, Chicago, Illinois, 1938.
