Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary,
that it is a thing unheard of
that anyone who had recourse to your protection,
implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left forsaken.
Filled therefore with confidence in your goodness,
I fly to you, O Mother, Virgin of virgins.
To you I come; before you I stand a sorrowful sinner.
Despise not my words, O Mother of the Word,
but graciously hear and grant my prayer. Amen
