Salve Regina, a 6

Salve Regina, a 6

Sabbato in Pentecoste. Ad completorium


Salve regina mater misericordiae 
vita dulcedo et spes nostra salve.
Ad te clamamus, exsules filii Hevae. 
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 exilium ostende.
O clemens, o pia, o dulcis Virgo Maria


Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
hail 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 od thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
