Psalm 101
of the Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary
by St. Bonaventure

O Lady, hear my prayer:
and let my cry come unto thee.

Turn not thy sacred countenance away from me:
nor hate me because of my uncleanness.

Forsake me not in the thought and counsel of mine enemies:
and permit me not to fall in their wicked attacks.

Those who trust in thee, will not fear the tortuous snake:
and those who exalt thee in praises will escape the hand of Acheron.

By thy virginal conception give me a good confidence in thee:
and by thy admirable delivery rejoice my soul.
