Our Lady Of Mt Carmel

Lady of the mystic mountain
Where the Lord has set his throne,
Up its steep ways of the Spirit
None can walk save love alone.
Grant us grace to climb Mount Carmel
And learn that love is loss;
Guide us till our ways out distance
All earth’s treasures save the Cross.

Virgin of the Incarnation,
In the mysteries of grace
God has made his habitation
In our soul’s most secret place.
Toward that bright and inner kingdom
All our words and ways compel
For the Father, Son and Spirit
In its sacred silence dwell.

Queen and beauty of Mt Carmel,
Virgin of the solitude,
In the wilderness of Carmel
Lies the world’s eternal good.
Draw us to its deep seclusion
And make God alone our goal
In the mystical Mount Carmel
That lies hidden in the soul.

  • Sr Miriam of the Holy Spirit O.C.D.
