Star of the Sea

A Poem By Edith // 6/1/2007

Beautiful Maiden, Star of the sea,
Look down with love, upon me.
Give me grace, hope, love and truth,
To keep with forever through old age and youth.
Guide me with Your glittering eyes,
Comfort me with Your calming arms,
Kiss me with Your tender lips,
And hold me away from harms.

Beautiful Maiden, Star of the sea,
Look down with love, upon me.
Hold my hand when I cross danger
And when I speak with bad behavior.
Cover my ears when there is sin
Close my eyes when there is wrong
Carry me away when there is noise
And bring me back with Your song.

Beautiful Maiden, Star of the sea,
Look down with love, upon me.
Hug me tight when I feel lonely,
Tell me a story to me when I am sleepy,
Sing to me when I am weepy,
Touch me once when I feel afraid
And all fear will be gone.

Beautiful Maiden, O Star of the sea,
Mother, look down with love upon me.
Whisper in my ear when all is dark
Sooth me with Your voice when evil embarks.
Beckon to me when the people go
And bring me to where Your sacred roses grow.

Beautiful Maiden, Star of the sea,
My Mother, Ave Maria,
Standing before me in a robe of white,
Your beautiful hair swaying left to right,
Shining like a million Stars, does Your beautiful face,
Give me faith, hope, love, truth,
Give me Your love, give me Grace.

Shocking!

What a beautiful poem! You could put that in a prayer book! It really would comfort someone in need of a mother. I just love it!

Wonderful job!
