Hail Holy Queen (Salve Regina)

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 send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.

Turn then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this our exile, show unto us
the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

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