Marian prayers


By the Rev. Matthew Russell, S.J

IMG 1337Queen of Perpetual Succour, 
And Mother more than Queen! 
For thy pure heart a mother's 
To me has always been. 
Thy love has smiled upon me 
Ere I thy name could know. 
Before my first Hail Mary! 
Alas! so long ago. 


Yet why alas? —I thank thee
And bless my gracious God 
That I thus far in safety
Along life's pathway plod.
The perils of the journey 
I almost cease to fear, 
Queen of Perpetual Succour! 
Since thou art always near. 


Be near me when the tempter
Steals nigh with poisoned breath 
Near 'mid the toils of daytime,
Near in the night of death. 
I've seen thy children dying, 
So calm, so bright, so brave!
In that dread hour be near me, 
To succour and to save. 


When life and death are over, 
And when the cleansing flame 
"Has wrought its work of mercy, 
May Jesus name my name, 
And bid my angel bear me 
In triumph to His Heart! 
Queen of Perpetual Succour, 
Till then, ah ! plead my part.

Loving Mother of the Redeemer,

Gate of heaven, star of the sea,

Assist your people who have fallen,

as we strive to rise again.

To the wonderment of nature,

Your bore your Creator,

Yet remained a virgin as before,

You who received Gabriel's joyful greeting,

Have pity on us poor sinners.

Hail Holy Queen

 Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,

Hail our life,

Our sweetness and our hope.

To thee do we cry, pool banished children of Eve.

To thee do we send up our sighs,

mourning and weeping in this vale of tears.

Turn, then most gracious Advoctate,

thine eyes of mercy towards us,

and after this, oue exile,

show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Oh clement, Oh loving

Oh sweet Virgin Mary


Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with thee.

Blessed art thou among women

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God

Pray for us sinners,

now and at the hour of our death.
