O Dearest Mother of Mercy
 
  1. All hail! our admirable Mother,
    Let angels and men sing her praise;
    None after Jesus is above her,
    For he should be the sweetest lays.
  2. Protect and hear us, gentlest Mary,
    From on high hear our humble cries;
    On us that mourn and weep in misery,
    O turn thy mercy's tender eyes.
  3. O clement sweet and pious Mary,
    O thou of whom our Lord was born,
    Show us thy Son to make us happy,
    When life at last is from us torn.
