English Text and Accompaniment by Sr Mary Evelyn Rybicki, CSSF
Mother of our Savior, holiest of women,
You are the straightest pathway leading all to heaven.
You give us safest passage to eternal portals,
Mary sweetest Mother, brightest Hope of mortals!
We implore you, O Mary, lift your sinful people
Struggling still with temptation; our strength is not ample.
You gave birth to our Savior without pain or labor;
You alone were found worthy to nurse our Creator!
Virgin before and after, Marvel of all ages,
God had sent His Archangel to tell His holy message.
Intercede for us sinners; be our loving Mother;
Keep us safe from all danger; guide us to our Father!
