Bogurodzica - najpiękniejszy hymn Polski.
Available on YouTube at

Bogurodzica ("Mother of God") is a Polish Catholic Hymn dating back to between the 10th-
and 13th-Centuries, which has since then been sung in battle or facing an oppressor.

Bogurodzica dziewica, Bogiem sławiena Maryja,
U twego syna Gospodzina Matko zwolena, Maryja !
Zyszczy nam, spuści nam.
Kyrie eleison !

Twego dziela Krzciciela, bożycze,
Usłysz głosy, napełń myśli człowiecze.
Słysz modlitwę, jąż nosimy,
A dać raczy, jegoż prosimy:
A na świecie zbożny pobyt,
Po żywocie rajski przebyt.
Kyrie eleison !

It is sung in times of Peace, too, to commemorate those times when
The Blessed Virgin Mary has protected Poland,
of which she remains the only Queen.

Virgin, Mother of God, God-famed Mary !
Ask Thy Son, Our Lord, God-named Mary,
To have mercy upon us and hand it over to us !
Kyrie eleison !

Son of God, for Thy Baptist's sake,
Hear the voices, fulfill the pleas we make !
Listen to the Prayer we say,
For what we ask, give us today:
Life on Earth free of vice;
After life: paradise !
Kyrie eleison !

Let us also Pray it for the Polish Bishops.
