Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that any one who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help or sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
O virgin of virgins my mother;
to thee do I come,
before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful;
O mother of the word incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy clemency hear and answer me.
