Ethelburga, Queen, Abbess of Lyminge, Kent
Dismissal Hymn (Tone 1)
O holy Ethelburga, thou didst blossom as a lily
in Kent and then adorn Northumbria as bride of the martyr king Edwin.
Thou didst devote thy widowhood to thy convent in Kent. Pray that
we, following the example of thy long and fruitful life, may spend
all our years in God's service and find mercy at the last.
