O Mother of Perpetual Help,
grant that I may ever invoke your most powerful name,
which is the safeguard of the living
and the salvation of the dying.
O purest Mary, O sweetest Mary,
let your name be forever on my lips.
O Blessed Lady, do no delay to help me,
whenever I call on you;
for, in all my temptations,
in all my needs,
I shall never cease to call on you,
ever repeating your sacred name, Mary, Mary.
O what consolation,
fill my soul when I utter your sacred name,
or even only think of you.
I thank the Lord for having given you,
for my good so sweet,
so powerful, so lovely a name.
But I will not be content with merely uttering your name.
Let my love for you prompt me ever to hail you,
Mother of Perpetual Help.
