EXALTIA (Madrian)

In honor of the Holy Daughter.

Kyria means Lady in the Lord sense.

Our Lady is exalted among the daughters of Heaven.
Shining Daughter, Star of the Sea,
Robed in celestial light.
She abases the cruel and proud,
And hearkens to the plea of the lowly.
The rich who deny her godhead find not contentment,
But blessed is the humblest of Her servants.
She delivers the captive into Her care,
And takes the hand of the fallen.
May the whole world praise Thee, Beloved Kyria,
May Thy glory be told of in all the earth.
Let them exalt Thy dominion
And Thy valiant courage
And glorify Thy holy Name.
Have mercy on Thy servant who gives Thee blessing
And take Thy servant’s hand in need and suffering.
In illness and distress give Thy servant the gift of life
May Thy servant go forever in joy and delight
To magnify Thy holy Name
Before all the peoples of the world.
