O blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of God and our most gentle Queen and Mother,
look down in mercy upon your loving children
who greatly hope and trust in thee.
Through you Jesus our Savior and our hope was given to the world;
and He has given You to us that we might hope still more.
Plead for us Your children, O sorrowful Mother.
Intercede for our separated sheep,
that with us in the one true fold
they may be united to the supreme Shepherd,
Pray for us all, dear Mother,
that by faith fruitful in good works
we may all deserve to see and praise God,
together with you, in our heavenly home.
