Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary


Prayer to Our Lady of the Assumption
Lovely Lady dressed in Blue,
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little Boy, tell me what to say!
Did you lift Him up, sometimes, gently, on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way Mother does to me?
Did you hold His hand at night? Did you ever try Telling stories of the world?
O! And did He cry?
Do you really think He cares If I tell Him things ~little things that happen?
And do the Angels' wings Make a noise? And can He hear Me if I speak low?
Does He understand me now? Tell me - for you know?
Lovely Lady dressed in blue, teach me how to pray!
God was just your little Boy.
And you know the way.

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
