Look down O Mother Mary,
From Thy bright throne above.
Cast down upon thy children
One only glance of love.
And if a heart so tender.
In pity flows not oer.
Then turn away O Mother.
And look on us no more.

May little Jesus bless you this
coming Xmas morning.
May you be as glad as Mary
the night that He was born.
May all the joy of Joseph be
glowing in your heart.
May Angles songs be near you
and never more depart.
Told to me by my mother.
