Dormition

Call now, Blessed Mother
For your broken-hearted sons
The sword that pierced your own heart pierces theirs
Call now, Blessed Mother
Those you've born into your rest
So they can bear your body when your soul goes to the blest

Sleep now, Blessed Mother
For your hour is now come
The Son of God in Heaven calls you home
Sleep now, Blessed Mother
For the God you bore in love
Will once again make you His throne in Heaven up above

Pray now, Blessed Mother
For the hour of our death
That we may be with you once again
Pray now, Blessed Mother
To the Son Who loved you best
To save us from all danger and number us with the blest
