Daily Daily Sing to Mary

This Marian hymn was translated to English by Fr Henry Bittleston - although Fr Faber may also have made a translation. Early publications (from 1870 on) often say it came from a Latin work (Omni Die Die Mariae) by St Casimir, the patron saint of Poland and Lithuania. More recent works say it was written by St Bernard of Cluny, and that Casimir had a particular devotion to it.

With meter 87 87 D tunes it has been set to include:
  • An unnamed tune by F N Birtcnell, in the "Catholic Church Hymnal" of 1905
  • Another tune by E F MacGonigle, 1887  (with the hymn titled "Mary the World's Majestic Queen")
  • ALLE TAGE SING UND SAGE
  • DAILY DAILY - from 'Paderborn Gesangbuch (1765)
  • LAUDES MARIAE by Henri Friedrich Hémy (1818-1888)
  • ERIE by Charles C. Con­verse

Lyrics:

Daily, daily sing to Mary,
Sing, my soul, her praises due:
All her feasts, her actions honour
With the heart's devotion true.
Lost in wond'ring contemplation,
Be her majesty confessed:
Call her Mother, call her Virgin,
Happy Mother, Virgin blest.

She is mighty in her pleading,
Tender in her loving care;
Ever watchful, understanding,
All our sorrows she will share.
Advocate and loving mother,
Mediatrix of all grace:
Heaven's blessings she dispenses
On our sinful human race.

Sing, my tongue, the Virgin's trophies
Who for us her Maker bore.
For the curse of old inflicted,
Peace and blessing to restore.
Sing in songs of peace unending,
Sing the world's majestic Queen.
Weary not nor faint in telling.
All the gifts she gives to men.

All my senses, heart, affections,
Strive to her glory forth;
Spread abroad the sweet memorials,
Of the Virgin’s priceless worth;
Where the voice of music thrilling,
Where the tongues of eloquence,
That can utter hymns beseeming
All her matchless excellence?

All our graces flow through Mary;
All then join her praise to sing:
Fairest work of all creation,
Mother of creation's King.
Sing in songs of peace unending,
Call upon her lovingly:
Seat of wisdom, Gate of heaven,
Morning star upon the sea.
