Ave, Generosa
I behold you,
noble, glorious and whole woman
- a medieval chant composed by St. Hildegard of Bingen

Sophia, an aspect of the Divine Feminine also known as Wisdom, allows us to see clearly from within the world of Spirit that which our outer world most needs to receive from us. Trusting our own clarity of vision allows us to express the wisdom of Sophia through acts of compassion, self-forgiveness, and an engaged heart. This song, written nearly a thousand years ago by Hildegard of Bingen, draws out of us our own ability to embody Wisdom.


This song is from Norma's newly released album
Unfurling Love's Creation


Ave generosa
I behold you,
noble, glorious and whole woman,
the pupil of purity.
You are the sacred matrix
in which God takes great pleasure.

The essences of Heaven flooded into you,
and the Great Word of God dressed itself in flesh.

You appeared as a shining white lily,
as God looked upon you before all of Creation.

O lovely and tender one,
how greatly has God delighted in you.
For He has placed His passionate embrace within you,
so that His Son might nurse at your breast.

Your womb held joy,
with all the celestial symphony sounding through you,
Virgin, who bore the Son of God,
when your purity became luminous in God.

Your flesh held joy,
like grass upon which dew falls,
pouring its life-green into it,
and so it is true in you also,
o Mother of all delight.

Now let all Ecclesia shine in joy
and sound in symphony
praising the most tender woman,
Mary, the bequeather/seed-source of God.

Amen.

Latin text and music by Hildegard of Bingen, English translation by Norma Gentile
