Lovely Lady

By Linda J. Perakis
Lovely Lady dressed in blue,
Do you know that I love you?
And I know you love me too,
Lady Mediatrix.

Grace me with your heavenly kiss
From the sweetness of your lips,
And my heart will sing in bliss,
Lady Mediatrix.

When I look into your eyes,
My heart pleas with loving sighs,
My prayers and hopes to you arise,
Lady Mediatrix.

To your holy Son, attend
My petitions I do send;
Graces, blessings to descend,
Lady Mediatrix.

Blessed Mother, Holy Child,
Painted in icon style,
Venerated all the while,
Lady Mediatrix. 1
