The Memorare


emember O Most gracious

          Virgin Mary, that never
was it known that anyone
who fled to Thy Protection,
implored Thy help, or sought
Thy intercession, was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence
I fly unto Thee, O Virgin of Virgins
my Mother; to Thee I come;
before Thee I stand;
sinful and sorrowful
O Mother of the Word
incarnate despise not my petitions,
but in Thy clemency
hear and answer me.
