The assumption of the Blessed Virgin

Upward from the Earth she came
and awestruck angels whispered her name.
Welcome, Mary, heaven's queen.

Rejoicing souls who'd waited long
to enter heaven joined in the song.
Welcome, Mary, heaven's queen.

Adam and Eve with eyes downcast
greeted the virgin unsurpassed.
Welcome, Mary, heaven's queen.

Prophets, kings and saints of old
rejoiced her victory to behold.
Welcome, Mary, heaven's queen.

While millions sang, she saw but one,
her gaze stayed on her own dear son.
Welcome, Mary, heaven's queen.
