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 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!
V. Pray for us, Holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray.
whose only-begotten Son,
by his Life, Death and Resurrection,
has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life,
grant, we beseech you,
that we who meditate on these mysteries
of the most holy Rosary of the blessed Virgin Mary,
may both imitate what they contain
and obtain what they promise,
through the same Christ our Lord.
