Hail, O Queen,
Mother of mercy:
our life, our sweetness, and our hope, hail.
To thee do we cry, exiles; sons of Eve.
To thee do we sigh,

moaning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Ah then, our Advocate,
those merciful eyes of thine turn towards us.
And Jesus,

the blessed fruit of thy womb,
after this exile show unto us.

O clement:

O holy:

O sweet Virgin

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

O God, our refuge and our strength, look down with mercy upon the people who cry to Thee; and by the intercession of the glorious and immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Saint Joseph her spouse, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the saints, in Thy mercy and goodness hear our prayers for the conversion of sinners, and for the liberty and exaltation of the Holy Mother the Church.

Through the same Christ Our Lord.

Amen



Saint Michael the Archangel,

defend us in battle.

Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;

and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host –

by the Divine Power of God –

cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,

who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.  

Amen

We fly to Thy protection, O Holy Mother of God;

Do not despise our petitions in our necessities,

but deliver us always from all dangers,

O Glorious and Blessed Virgin.

Amen.
