ANGELS: The Nine Choirs, How They Sing by Mechthild of Magdeburg

The Nine Choirs, How They Sing by Mechthild of Magdeburg

Now hear, my Beloved: listen with spiritual ears. Thus do the nine choirs sing:

We praise you, Lord, that you sought us in your humility.
We praise you, Lord, that you have kept us in your mercy.
We praise you, Lord, that you have glorified us in your humiliation.
We praise you, Lord, that you have provided for us in your generosity.
We praise you, Lord, that you have arranged us in rank in your wisdom.
We praise you, Lord, that you have shielded us with your might.
We praise you, Lord, that you have sanctified us with your nobility.
We praise you, Lord, that you have instructed us in your intimacy.
We praise you, Lord, that you have elevated us in your love.
