Our Lady of Reconciliation

  1. When I lift my humble eyes and look to thee
    I can see your womb in blessing
    and I feel your love caressing me
    with soft maternal care,
    your sweet figure standing boldly
    trampling on the wicked serpent
    lights a fire of love in me
    and my hope is reignited
    when I lift my humble eyes and look to thee.
  2. In your heart there is a gentle burning flame
    that reveals your love ignited
    where the sword has left you wounded
    and convinced me of your love.
    There’s no sadness that won’t vanish
    there’s no pain that won’t relinquish
    in the calling of your name;
    you’re a fountain of relief when
    in your heart there is a gentle burning flame.
  3. Your blue mantle is a haven of your love
    where the sinner finds his shelter
    and with hope is taught to treasure
    the forgiveness of the Lord.
    Your two hands as fair as white doves
    will console me and remind me
    for the reason I should live;
    who in you would not confide if
    your blue mantle is a haven of your love.
  4. Your sweet name is like a song of love to me
    that is said ever so sweetly,
    that’s pronounced ever so slowly
    and repeated without rest.
    ¡Oh how beautiful our prayer!
    how consoling it’s for us to
    let your name our souls caress;
    how could we not whisper…Mary!
    If your name is like a song of love to me.
  5. In your womb the Word of God was turned to flesh
    and around your waist the gold belt
    gives us witness of the child held
    and the hope that you posses.
    If you are the queen that guides me
    to the reconciliation
    that the Lord my God begets
    who without you can resist if
    in your womb the Word of God was turned to flesh.
  6. Who could turn away and spare your innocence
    when before your eyes of mercy
    even hearts with pride are made free
    from their loads like sun through haze;
    even happiness and pain blend
    and adorn your heart together
    like the flowers that you dress
    To your love and warming shelter,
    all my life, beloved Mother, I present. (2x)

Nuestra Señora de la Reconciliación

  1. Reposan mis pobres ojos sobre ti
    y al mirar tu dulce vientre
    me consuela suavemente
    tu ternura maternal,
    tu dulcísima figura
    que a la serpiente domina,
    enciende el amor en mí
    y renace la esperanza
    al reposar mis pobres ojos sobre ti.
  2. En tu pecho hay un ardiente resplandor
    que tu corazón enciende
    donde la espada que pende
    me convence de tu amor.
    No hay tristeza que no ceda
    ni dolor que no se rinda
    ante tu dulce corazón;
    de ternuras eres fuente
    si en tu pecho hay un ardiente resplandor.
  3. Es tu manto el gran remanso de tu amor
    donde el pecador encuentra
    la esperanza que lo alienta
    a confiar en el perdón.
    Tus manos como palomas
    me consuelan y me indican
    la razón de mi existir;
    quién en ti no confiaría
    si es tu manto el gran remanso de tu amor.
  4. Es tu nombre un bello canto a tu bondad
    que se dice dulcemente,
    se pronuncia lentamente
    y se repite sin cesar.
    ¡Qué llamado tan gozoso!
    ¡Qué serena melodía!
    Es tu nombre pronunciar
    cómo no decir ¡María!
    si es tu nombre un bello canto a tu bondad.
  5. En tu seno el mismo Verbo se encarnó
    y en tu vientre el cinto de oro
    testimonia tu esperanza
    y tu pureza en su esplendor.
    Si Tú, tierna Reina mía,
    me conduces y me guías
    hacia el Reconciliador
    quién sin ti vivir podría
    si en tu seno el mismo Verbo se encarnó.
  6. Quién podría resistirse a tu candor
    si ante tu mirada tierna
    la soberbia se disuelve
    como bruma bajo el sol;
    alegrías y dolores
    se unen como blancas flores
    en torno a tu corazón,
    hoy mi vida se confía,
    dolorosa Madre mía, a tu amor. (2v)
