In heaven stood a linden tree
With pure white flowers laden;
Yet not a bloom was fair as she,
Sweet Mary, chosen maiden.

Great Gabriel, God’s angel bright,
From high above came winging
To one, the purest in God’s sight,
A joyful message bringing.

"Hail, Mary, blessed virgin mild,
With God you have found favor;
You shall conceive and bear a child,
To all the world a Savior.”

“My soul does magnify the Lord!
I am His servant lowly;
Be all according to His word,"
Said Mary, meek and holy.

Away the angel flew to share
The news of Mary's duty;
And heav’n rejoiced that she would bear
The Blossom of all Beauty.
