Come, O my soul, humble thyself at the feet of Mary, thy Mother, and depart not till she hath blessed thee. O blessed of God and enriched with all grace, in thy clemency bless my afflicted soul, and by thy mighty intercession, obtain for me, from thy beloved Son, the object of this novena of prayer.
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy!
Our life, our sweetness, and our hope!
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley, of tears.
Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb Jesus;
O clement, O loving, O sweet virgin Mary.
Let us pray.
O God, Who by the fruitful virginity of Blessed Mary hast bestowed upon mankind the reward of eternal salvation, grant, we beseech thee, that we may know the help of her intercession, through whom we have been made worthy to receive the Author of our life, Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son: Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God, world without end. Amen.
