Hail Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us. And after this our exile, show unto us the blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

Salve, Regína, mater misericódiæ; vita, dulcédo et spes nostra, salve. Ad te clamámus éxsules fílii Hevæ. Ad te suspirámus geméntes et flentes in hac lacrimárum valle. Eia, ergo, advocáta nostra, illos tuos misericórdes óculos ad nos convérte. Et Jesum, benedíctum fructum ventris tui, nobis post hoc exsílium osténde. O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo María.

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.

Ora pro nobis Sancta Dei Génitrix.

R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Ut digni efficiámur promissiónibus Christi.

Let us pray.


O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant we beseech Thee, that, meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Deus, cujus Unigénitus per vitam, mortem et resurrectiónem suam nobis salútis ætérnæ praémia comparávit: concéde, quaésumus; ut hæc mystéria sacratíssimo beátæ Maríæ Vírginis Rosário recoléntes, et imitémur quod cóntinent, et quod promíttunt, assequámur. Per eúndem Christem Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
