The Joyful Mysteries

Hail Mary, Queen of Purity,
Woven with grace on Spirit's loom,
Your soul, veiled with obscurity,
Wrought Word Made Flesh within your womb.

The Luminous Mysteries

His glory shone in human form:
The law and prophets are fulfilled
In Him who will cleanse and transform
Us to Himself as He has willed.

The Sorrowful Mysteries

A night of anguish fell on Him;
The weight of failed humanity.
He buckled; as all hope grew dim,
With faith, He drank His destiny.

The Glorious Mysteries

The stone of death is rolled away:
The tomb's empty; Love's vict'ry reigns!
Christ's glory dawns on this first day;
"He is risen!" fills our refrains.
