      Hi Elizabeth and all,
      Thank you for your patience in waiting for the translation of the
      Polish hymn "Zdrowas Maryjo".

      I also found a couple of other versions on the internet. (Google
      has a Polish site at www.google.pl)

      Below is the translation of the old Polish hymn (prayer ?) that
      Elizabeth requested. I have to thank my mom for assistance.
      The Polish language used in the prayer is at times archaic,
      poetic and specific to Catholicism.

      If anyone has any suggestions regarding getting it to flow better
      as a prayer in English, please post them.

      Ty, cos karmila swiata Zbawienie,
      You who nourished the Savior of the world,

      I nam, jak Matka, daj pozywienie,
      Nourish us also like a mother,
