Chorus:
Oh! be thou mindful, Mother most tender,
Ne'er was thine aid implored in vain;
Faint in the combat, lest we surrender,
Do thou our falt-ring hearts sustain,
Do thou our falt'ring hearts sustain.

1 In ages gone by, as all records declare,
Not once hast thou slighted the suppliant's cry;
Nor shall ages that follow thy mercies impair:
To all that invoke thee, sweet Mother, thou'rt nigh, sweet Mother, thou'rt nigh.
Oh! be thou mindful, Mother most tender,
Ne'er was thine aid implored in vain;
Faint in the combat, lost we surrender,
Do thou our falt'ring hearts sustain,
Do thou our falt'ring hearts sustain.

2 For this, in the midst of my sin and my dread,
At the thought of thy mercies with hope I'm inspired,
O Virgin! thy Son on the cross for me bled:
Thy Son on the cross for my ransome expired, for my ransom expired.
Oh! be thou mindful, Mother most tender,
Ne'er was thine aid implored in vain;
Faint in the combat, lest we surrender,
Do thou our falt-ring hearts sustain,
Do thou our falt'ring hearts sustain.
