Sister Repentant, hear me!
As you did wash with your locks,
Through our dark-washed souls we’re free!
Sister So-Starkly, bear me!
As you did crave with your touch,
Through His love you must here flee!
Sister Dearest-Friend, wear me!
As you did seek warmth in rocks,
Through my embrace I bare thee!
Sister Wanderer, fear three!
As you did sail to France much,
Through their one-living dear sea!
Mary, I beg of your Grace;
Wary, I beg Love’s sure pace.
Please pray for me, a sinner.
