Heaven on Earth

Gabriel Appeared

Gabriel stood before thee, O Maiden, 
Revealing the pre-eternal counsel, 
Saluting thee and exclaiming: 

"Rejoice, O earth unsown!
Rejoice, O bush unburnt! 
Rejoice, O depth hard to fathom! 
Rejoice, O bridge leading to the heavens and lofty ladder, which Jacob beheld! 
Rejoice, O divine jar of Manna! 
Rejoice, annulment of the curse! 
Rejoice, restoration of Adam: the Lord is with thee!"
