Lyrics copied from P3 and perl-formatted --QMacrocarpa 12:14, 12 September 2007 (PDT):

"O GLORIOUS Maid, exalted far"
"Beyond the light of burning star,"
"From him who made thee thou hast won"
"Grace to be Mother of his Son."
""
"That which was lost in hapless Eve"
"Thy holy Scion did retrieve:"
"The tear-worn sons of Adam's race"
"Through thee have seen the heavenly place."
""
"Thou wast the gate of heaven's high Lord."
"The door through which the light hath poured."
"Christians rejoice, for through a Maid"
"To all mankind is life conveyed!"
""
"All honour, laud, and glory be,"
"O Jesu, Virgin-born to thee;"
"All glory, as is ever meet,"
"To Father and to Paraclete. Amen."
""

Notes by L2 Jkenny 05:57, 22 October 2007 (PDT)

  • Lyrics verse 3 line 1 looks like it should end with a comma. The image shows clearly that the line ends with a period but grammatically a comma would seem more correct. Opted to match image. Second opinion would be appreciated.


Second opinion by KenJ 03:49, 24 October 2007 (PDT)

  • I agree it should end with a comma (grammatically). Also, it wouldn't be the first time I'd seen a comma with it's "tail" completely missing, so it looks like a period in the image. Personally, I would change the period to a comma, and leave a note for PP whichever way it's done.
