Santa Maria, strela do dia,
Mostra-nos via pera Deus e nos guia.
Ca veer faze-los errados
Que perder foran per pecados
Entender de que mui culpados
Son; mais per ti son perdõados
Da ousadia
Que lles fazia
Fazer folia
Mais que non deveria.
Santa Maria, strela do dia,
Mostra-nos via pera Deus e nos guia.
Amostrar-nos deves carreira
Por gãar en toda maneira
A sen par luz e verdadeira
Que tu dar-nos podes senlleira;
Ca Deus a ti a
Outorgaria
E a querria
Por ti dar e daria.
Santa Maria, strela do dia,
Mostra-nos via pera Deus e nos guia.
Guiar ben nos pod’o teu siso
Mais ca ren pera Parayso
U Deus ten senpre goy’e riso
Pora quen en el creer quiso;
E prazer-m-ia
Se te prazia
Que foss’a mia
Alm’en tal compannia.
Santa Maria, strela do dia,
Mostra-nos via pera Deus e nos guia.

From Apollo’s Fire’s new program:
O JERUSALEM! – Crossroads of Three Faiths
The program is a “tour” of the four quarters of the Old City – the Jewish, Arab, Christian, and Armenian Quarters – during the period 1200-1650. “Santa Maria, Strela do Dia” is the finale of the “Christian Quarter” section of the program. This piece evokes a medieval street parade in honor of Saint Mary.
