MARY...................CHRIST

Mary the Dawn, but Christ the perfect Day;
Mary the Gate, but Christ the heavenly Way:
Mary the Root, but Christ the mystic Vine;
Mary the Grape, but Christ the sacred Wine:
Mary the Wheat, but Christ the living bread;
Mary the Rose-tree, Christ the Rose Blood-red
Mary the Fount, but Christ the Cleansing Flood;
Mary the Chalice, Christ the saving Blood;
Mary the Temple, Christ the Temple's Lord:
Mary the Shrine, but Christ its God adored;
Mary the Beacon, Christ the haven's Rest;
Mary the Mirror, Christ the vision Blest.
