How Happy My Soul
How happy my soul, good Mother,
when I had the good fortune to gaze upon you!
How I love to recall the pleasant moments spent under your gaze,
so full of kindness and mercy for us.
Yes, tender Mother,
you stooped down to earth to appear to a mere child….
You, the Queen of heaven and earth,
deigned to make use of the most fragile thing in the world’s eyes. Amen.
