702. Hail, Holy Queen Enthroned Above

1 Hail, holy Queen enthroned above,
O Maria.
Hail, Queen of mercy and of love,
O Maria.
Triumph, all ye Cherubim,
Sing with us, ye Seraphim,
Heav'n and earth resound the hymn;
Salve, Salve,
Salve, Regina.

2 The cause of joy to all below,
O Maria.
The spring through which all graces flow,
O Maria.
Angels, all your praises bring,
Earth and heaven, with us sing,
All creation echoing:
Salve, Salve,
Salve, Regina.

3 O gentle, loving, holy one,
O Maria.
The God of light became your Son,
O Maria.
Triumph, all ye Cherubim,
Sing with us, ye Seraphim.
Heav'n and earth resound the hymn:
Salve, Salve,
Salve, Regina.
