I. 0 loved by God 0 purest dove who soared to blissful heights above;
Look down on us today who sing your glorious praises to the king.
Refrain: 0 pure and blest Scholastica,
0 pray to the Father above
that we may learn to walk in truth,
And ever seek the ways of love.
II. From earthly joys you turned away
to tread your holy brother sway
And happiness without alloy
you found in serving God with joy!
III. You learned to know love’s mighty sway
When Benedict declined to stay
To talk of heaven through the night
Your spouse refused not this delight.
IV. And when life’s winter passed away
above the clouds you winged your way
and there with all the saints you sing
The joy of love’s eternal spring.
V. All praise, honor, glory be to You
Most bless ‘d Holy Trinity
Your love unbounded did impart
to Scholastica’s enraptured heart.
