1 Hail to the Queen who reigns above,
Mother of Clemency and Love,
Hail thou our Hope, Life, Sweetness; we
Eve's banish'd Children cry to thee
2 We from this wretched Vale of Tears
Send Sighs and Groans unto thy Ears;
Oh! then, sweet Advocate, bestow
A pitying Look on us below.
3 After this Exile, let us see
Our blessed Jesus, born of thee:
O merciful, O pious Maid,
O gracious Mary, lend thine Aid.
