Be Glad, O Full of Grace

From The Anthology of The Greeks

   The Mother of God, when the birth of Christ was near, spoke thus to her spouse; Be not sad, Joseph, finding that I am Mother; for thou shalt see him who is to be born of me, and thou shalt rejoice and adore him as thy God. Let us commemorate this divine Mother, saying; 
Be glad, O full of grace! the Lord is with thee, and with us by thee.

by Dom Prosper  Granger O.S.B.
London, 1867
