Hail, Holy Queen

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve! To you do we send up our sighs, mourning, and weeping in the vale of tears! Turn then, most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus! O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary, pray for us holy Mother of God that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Almighty and everlasting God, who by the cooperations of the Holy Spirit prepared the body and soul of the glorious Virgin, Mother Mary, to be a fit dwelling for your Son, grant that we who rejoice in her memory may be freed by her kindly prayers both from present ills and from eternal death; throu the same Christ our Lord, Amen.
