American Catholic Heritage: Trying to find this Hymn
  • I keep reading in many articles about the Immaculate Conception that there is this hymn in Spanish that used to be sung in America, written by the first Franciscan missionaries. I know one hymn that is similar but still different. Does anyone know any sources and where I can find the music?

    Alabado y ensalzado
    Sea el Divino Sacramento,
    En quien Dios oculto asiste,
    De las Almas el sustento.
    Y la limpia Concepcion
    De la Reina de los Cielos,
    Que quedando Virgen Pura,
    Es Madre del Verbo Eterno.

    I've often adapted the tune for psalmody, as for example in this thread. My source was Owen da Silva's book.
