Holy Mary Mother Mild

This Marian hymn of praise from the 19th century was first published in Rohr's Favorite Catholic Melodies, 1854.

It is usually attributed to English-born, American-emigrant musician, choirmaster and music editor. William Dressler (1826–1914) - it is likely that he wrote the tune, rather than the words. 

 The text has meter:   The tune is unnamed. 




Small choir with organ:


1  Holy Mary Mother Mild,
O dearest Mother
Hear O hear thy feeble child,
O sweet sweet Mother.

O exult ye Cherubim 
And rejoice ye Serephim:
Praise her praise her, 
O praise our spotless Mother.

2  Tossed on life's tempestuous sea, 
O dearest Mother
Cast thy tender eyes on me, 
O sweet sweet Mother.

3  Brightest in the courts above, 
O dearest Mother
Joy of angels, Queen of love, 
O sweet, sweet Mother! 

4   Maiden Mother, hear my prayer,
O dearest Mother
Prove to me thy loving care, 
O sweet, sweet Mother!
