St. Bonaventure, Virgin and Child

Psalm 5

Incline thine ear, O Lady, to hear my prayers: and turn not away from me the beauty of thy face. Turn our mourning into rejoicing: and our tribulation into joy. May our enemies fall down at our feet: by thy power may their heads be crushed. Let every tongue praise thee: and let all flesh bless thy holy name. For thy spirit is sweet above honey: and thy inheritance above the honey and the honeycomb.
