From today's Hymn of the Day

Here a Maid was found with Child,
Yet remained a Virgin mild.
In her womb this truth was shown:
God was there upon His throne.
LSB 332:3

- St. Ambrose of Milan

Sweet!

Rev. Luke T. Zimmerman said...

Or you can sing it as John Mason Neale translated Ambrose's words from Veni, Redemptor gentium:

The virgin womb that burden gained
With virgin honour all unstained;
The banners there of virtue glow;
God in His temple dwells below.
("Come, Thou Redeemer of the Earth", st. 3)
