Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy,
our life, our sweetness, and our hope.
To you we cry, poor, banished children of Eve.
To you we lift 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 unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
