O Magnum Mysterium ~ (Begijnhof, Amsterdam)

O Magnum Mysterium

“Let no-one be a stranger

Within these walls”

For an afternoon concert

Of Portuguese songs

By Dutch voices

We enter this beautiful

Little English church

Hidden in an inner court

Of sparkling Amsterdam

Begijnhof

Where since the dark ages

Lay sisters used to find refuge

– O magnum mysterium –
