God, In Whom All Grace Doth Dwell!

This hymn is used for the Lauds on the (September) Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Extraordinary Form.

God, in whom all grace doth dwell!
Grant us grace to ponder well
On the Virgin’s Dolours seven;
On the wounds to Jesus given.

May the tears which Mary pour’d
Gain us pardon of the Lord;—
Tears sufficient in their worth
To wash out the guilt of earth.

May the contemplation sore
Of the five wounds Jesus bore,
Source to us of blessings be,
Through a long eternity.

Glory be to Him, who died
For his servants crucified;
Honour, praise, eternal merit,
To the Father and the Spirit.

Words: ascr. Callisto Palumbella, 1720.
Tune: TBD…
Meter: 77.77
