Lyrics / Letras
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy.
Our life, our sweetness, and our hope!
To thee do we cry, poor banished children
Poor banished children of Eve,
To thee do we send,
Send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn, then, most gracious,
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.
Pray for us,
O holy Mother of God,
that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
