Prayer to Our Lady of Perpetual Help – A


O Mother of Perpetual Help,
grant that I may ever invoke
thy most powerful name,
which is the safeguard of the living
and the salvation of the dying.
O Purest Mary, O Sweetest Mary,
let thy name henceforth be ever on my lips.
Delay not, O Blessed Lady, to help me
whenever I call on thee, for, in all my needs,
in all my temptations,
I shall never cease to call on thee,
ever repeating thy sacred name:
Mary, Mary.
O what consolation, what sweetness,
what confidence, what emotion
fills my soul when I pronounce thy sacred name
or even only think of thee.
I thank God for having given thee, for my good,
so sweet,  so powerful, so lovely a name.
But I will not be content
with merely pronouncing thy name.
Let my love for thee prompt me ever to hail thee:
Mother of Perpetual Help.

Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for me
and grant me the favor I confidently ask of thee.
