St Gertrude, Virgin
Thou hast loved justice and hated iniquity: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. * My heart hath uttered a good word: I speak my works to the King.
(Psalm 44:8,2 from the Introit of Mass)
O God, who in the heart of the holy virgin Gertrude didst provide for Thyself a pleasing abode; through her merits and prayers, do Thou cleanse from our hearts every stain of sin, and grant that we may enjoy fellowship with her for evermore.
Jesu, coróna Vírginum,
Quem Mater illa cóncipit
Quae sola Virgo párturit,
Haec vota clemens áccipe.
Jesu, the Virgins' Crown, do thou
Accept us, as in prayer we bow;
Born of that Virgin, whom alone
The Mother and the Maid we own.
(Hymn from Vespers, from the Common Office of Virgins)
