Song: Queen Of The May
Queen Of The May

Bring flowers of the rarest,
Bring blossoms the fairest,
From garden and woodland, and hillside and dale,
Our full hearts are swelling,
Our glad voices telling,
The praise of the loveliest Flower of the Vale

Chorus:
O Mary, we crown thee with blossoms today
Queen of the angels and Queen of the May
O Mary, we crown thee with blossoms today
Queen of the angels and Queen of the May
Their lady they name thee.
Their mistress proclaim thee,
Oh grant that thy children on earth be as true,
As long as the bowers
Are radiant with flowers,
As long as the azure shall keep it’s bright hue.
Chorus.

Sing gaily in chorus,
The bright angel’s o’er us
Re-echo the strains we bring upon earth.
Their harps are repeating,
The notes of our greeting,
For Mary herself is the cause of our mirth.
