Salve Regina - Hail Holy Queen

Courtesy of Mount St Mary's Seminary in Cincinnati, OH

Salve, Regina, Mater misericordiæ,

Vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.

Ad te clamamus exsules filii Hevæ,

Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes

In hac lacrimarum valle.

Eia, ergo, advocata nostra,

Illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte;

Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,

Nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.

O Clemens, O Pia, O Dulcis, Virgo Maria.

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.
