498. Hail, Holy Queen

1 Hail, holy Queen enthroned above, O Maria!
Hail, Queen of mercy and of love, O Maria!

Triumph, all ye cherubim,
Sing with us, ye seraphim!
Heav'n and earth resound the hymn:
Salve, salve, salve, Regina!

2 Our life, our sweetness here below, O Maria!
Our hope in sorrow and in woe, O Maria! [Refrain]

3 As exiles all to you we cry, O Maria!
Come, soothe with hope our misery, O Maria! [Refrain]

4 Turn then, most gracious advocate, O Maria!
Toward us your eyes compassionate, O Maria! [Refrain]

5 O gentle, loving, holy one, O Maria!
Make us each day more like your Son, O Maria! [Refrain]

6 And when from death to life we've passed, O Maria!
Show us your Son, our Lord, at last, O Maria! [Refrain]
