The Virgin stills the Crying


The virgin stills the crying
Of Jesus, sleepless lying;
And singing for His pleasure,
Thus calls upon her Treasure,


Refrain

ďMy Darling, do not weep,
My Jesu, sleep!Ē

O Lamb, my love inviting,
O Star, my soul delighting,
O Flower of mine own bearing,
O Jewel past comparing!

Refrain

My Child, of Might indwelling,
My Sweet, all sweets excelling,
Of bliss the Fountain flowing,
The Dayspring ever glowing,

Refrain

My Joy, my Exultation,
My spiritís Consolation;
My Son, my Spouse, my Brother,
O listen to Thy mother!

Refrain

Say, wouldíst Thou heavínly sweetness,
Or love of answering meetness?
Or is fit music wanting?
Ho! Angels, raise your chanting!

Refrain
