Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored your help, or sought your intercession
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my mother;
to you do I come,
before you I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
