O Mary of graces, and Mother of God,
May I tread in the paths
That the righteous have trod;
And mayest thou save me from evils untrue,
And mayest thou save me in body and soul.
And mayest thou save me by land and by sea,
And mayest thou save me from tortures to be.
May the guard of the Angels upon me abide,
May God be before me, and God at my side.
O Mary of Graces, oh answer my plea,
Under crosses in trials to thee do I flee;
O teach me sweet Mother to follow His will,
To journey with courage, up Calvary's hill.
O Mary, my Mother and Mother of God,
Be my guide and protectress, that I may not fall;
And mayest thou lead me to heaven above,
With Saints and Angels I'll share in thy love.
