Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that any one who
fled to thy protection, implored thy help,
and sought thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother, to thee I come,
before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful,
O Mother of the Word Incarnate!
Despise not my petitions, but, in thy
mercy, hear and answer me.
