Hail, Holy Queen

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy!
Our Life, our sweetness, and our hope!
To thee do we cry, poor banished
children of Eve; to thee do we send
up our sighs, mourning and weeping
in this valley, of tears. Turn, then,
most gracious advocate, thine eyes
of mercy toward us; and after this
our exile show unto us the blessed
fruit of thy womb, Jesus; O clement,
O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

 

            Amen.
