Salve Regina

Queen of heaven1

Salve Regina – Hail Holy Queen
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
to you do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.

Turn then, most gracious advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary

Pray for us O holy Mother of God,
that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
