Mary, we greet thee, Mother and Queen all merciful,
Our life, our sweetness and our hope, we hail thee.
To thee we exiled children of Eve lift our crying.
To thee we send our sighs, as mourning and weeping,
We pass through this vale of sorrow.
Haste then we pray, O our intercessor, look with pity
With eyes of love compassionate, upon us sinners,
And after, when this earthly exile shall be ended.
Show us thy womb’s most blessed fruit, thy Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O most sweet Virgin Mary.
V. Pray for us, o Holy Mother of God,
R. That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.
