Antiphon: O Frondens Virga...

Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179)

note: an antiphon is a verse or chorus chanted or sung in response.

O verdant maiden,

standing in thy nobility like the dawning light of day,

now rejoice and be glad,

and think us feeble ones worthy of freeing from our evil ways;

and even stretch forth thy hand to lift us up.
