Track Name: Santa Maria Strela do Dia
Number 100 in the C13th Cantigas de Santa Maria.Every tenth song in this collection is a song of praise to the Great Mother and this is a fine example.

Santa Maria Strela do Dia,
mosra-nos via pera Deus
e nos guia

Ca veer faze-los errados,
que perder foran per pecados
entender de que mui culpados

son;mais per ti son perdoados
da ousadia
que lles fazia
fazer folia
mais que non deveria

Amostrar nos deves carreira
por gaar en todo maneira
a sen par luz e verdadeira
que dar nos podes sennleira
ca Deus a ti a
e a querria
por ti dar e daria

Guiar ben nos podes teu siso
mais ca ren pera paraiso
u Deus ten sempre goi’e riso
pora quen en el creer quiso
e prazer-mi-a
se te prazia
que foss’ a mia
alm’en tal compannia

Holy Mary Star of day
show us the way to God
and be our guide

1.Make the wayward,
who were lost because of sin
see and understand that they
are very guilty
But they are pardoned by you
for the temerity
which caused them recklessly
to do what
they should not

2.You must show us the way
in all our deeds to win the
true and matchless light,which
only you can give us,
for God would grant it to you,
and most willingly
bestow it
for your sake

3. Your wisdom can guide us far better
than any other thing to paradise,
where God has always delight and joy
for whoever would believe in him.
I should rejoice
if it please you
to let my soul be
in such company

Maria mater luminis
Maria mater numinis
Maria fons dulcedinis
Templumque pulchritudinis
Et via beatitudinis

O Clemens,O pia
O dulcis Maria

Maria melle dulcior
Et floribus fragrantior
Maria rosis gratior
Firmamento splendidior
Et astris rulilantior

Maria fons,Maria mons
Maria lux,Maria dux
Maria rosa mystica
Maria rosa mystica

Maris plena gratia
Plena misericordia
Te venerantur omnia
Caelestia terrestrial
Tu nostra spes et gloria

Mary mother of light
Mary Mother of divinity
Mary Fount of sweetness
Temple of beauty
and road to happiness

O gentle,O loving
O sweet Mary

Mary sweeter than honey
and more fragrant than flowers
Brighter than the firmament
of glowing stars

Mary fount,Mary mount
Mary light Mary guide
Mary mystical rose
Mary mystical rose

Mary full of grace
full of mercy
All Heaven and earth
You are our hope and glory
Track Name: Ave Vergene Gaudente

Ave, vergene gaudente,
madre de l'Onnipotente.
1.Lo Signor per maravegla
de te feice madre e filia,
rosa biamch'e vermegla
sovr' ogl' altro fiore aulente.
2.Erevamo’n perdimento
Per lo nostro fallimento
Tu se’via salvamento
Chiara stella d’oriente
3.O Maria Virgo degna,
priega Cristo ke ne tegna;
al suo regno, ne sovegna,
per noi sia entercedente.
Hail, joyful virgin,
Mother of the all-powerful.
1. The Lord through a miracle
made you both Mother and Maiden
a rose both white and red,
more fragrant than any other flower.
2. We were lost
because of our failings
you are the way to salvation
Bright Star of the East

3. O Mary, worthy virgin,
pray to Christ that he keep us
in his kingdom, and remember us:
be an intermediary for us.
