Another Hymn to Mary Magdalene

Magdalene Repente by Antonio Canova, 1810

Here is another hymn/poem to Mary Magdalene, this time from Fr. Frederick Faber the author of so many important religious texts such as Growth in Holiness and Precious Blood:

They Sweet Fragrance of thine ointment
All the earth is filling now;
And thy tears are turned to jewels
For a crown upon thy brow:
There are thousands in all ages
Come to Christ because of thee,
Oh then, Mary, with thy converts
In thy kindness number me!
