Hear, O Blessed Virgin,
the prayers which we address you,
Our Lady of Rest,
as we are mindful of that maternal love
in which you receive your children.
It is by your powerful intercession, O Mary,
that our hearts and minds find rest.
We know well our own weakness;
but we trust in the everlasting promises,
and we hope for eternal happiness
as we cling to the crucified Jesus,
who has made His cross to be ours as well.
