Hail, Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen,
Mother of mercy,
hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To you we cry,
poor banished children of Eve;
to you we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this our exile,
show us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus;
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

Pray for us,
O holy Mother of God,
that we may become worthy of the promises of Christ.
