O Virgo Virginum

O Virgin of virgins, how shall this be?
You will conceive in your womb and bear a Son.
Your eyes will see the King in his beauty,
for that which you behold is a divine mystery.

We didn’t do this one in church.  It is part of the old Sarum Rite.  My evening prayer has been spent praying with and listening to the sisters in Wantage.  Reasonably enough, the Community of St Mary The Virgin use the Sarum Rite, and include the Marian antiphon.
