Songs and Chants
noble, glorious and whole woman
- a medieval chant composed by St. Hildegard of
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
This song is from Norma's newly released album
noble, glorious and whole woman,
the pupil of purity.
You are the sacred matrix
in which God takes great pleasure.
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.
