Representative Text

1 To thee, sweet Mother, heav'nly Queen,
We raise our loving hearts today;
O, deign to listen to our words,
While lowly at thy feet we pray.

Chorus:
Sweet Lady of the Sacred Heart,
Before thy shrine today.
We kneel on earth to choose thee Queen,
Queen of heav'n's eternal May.

2 We all thee oft the Queen of May,
And lily pure, and mystic rose;
And Mother of our Jesus dear,
In whose sweet heart love brightly glows. [Chorus]

3 And by this name today we call
On thee, by the unwearying love
Which thou dost for thy children feel,
To raise our loving hearts above. [Chorus]
