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 sigh, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, O most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy towards us;
and after this our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement! O loving! O sweet Virgin Mary!
