O Dearest Mother of Mercy

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.


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.


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.
