Mother! open Thou my heart to hear,

 And by Thy word to me draw near,

 Let me Thy word pure retain,

 Let me Thy child and heiress remain.


Oh my Mother! lovelier than the morning,

 fairer than the day light,

 Make Thee a bed, soft, undefiled,

 within my heart, that it may be

 A quiet chamber kept for Thee.


Mother! the very thought of Thee,

 with sweetness fills my heart,

 But sweeter for Thy face to see,

 And in Thy presence rest.


Mother! Thou art the life within me,

 I cannot draw another breath,

 Unless Thou give me power.

 I am the child to love Thee and obey!


Mother! Show me Thy face at the Dawn,

 Give me to see Thee at the break of day,

 O my sweet mother.


Show me Thy face at the Dawn,

 As the dew now softly falleth,

 So fresh the soul that calleth.


Show me Thy face at the Dawn,

 While the flowers are wet with dew,

 Dew of our Souls, descend.


Show me Thy face at the Dawn,

 Ere yet the Sun the day renews,

 Drop by Drop, Thy grace distilling,

bless me O my Divine
