MARY most pure,
Mother holy,
Virgin mother of God
The Lord;

Stoop to my prayer,
Sinless mother,
I am a spouse of Christ
The adored.

This is my prayer,
O fair mother, --
All the weight of my sins
Deplored,

That thou make it
Crush me, break me
With thought of judgment
That's stored

In wrath for all,
Virgin faultless,
Mortals who sin against
The Lord.

Mary of tears,
Stricken mother,
Wounded mother of Him
That died,

This is my prayer,
O sad mother, --
Pierce my heart as the spear
His side;

Be my life's cup,
Mourning mother,
From the depths of thy grief
Supplied;

Wound me, slay me,
Sorrow-ridden
Mother of God
The Crucified.

Mary all true,
Spotless Virgin,
Mother, lover of God
The Son,

This is my prayer,
Single-hearted,
Chosen of Him the
Jealous one.

Mary, lover,
O pure mother,
Of each joy that my life
Hath won,

Rob me, strip me,
Virgin ruthless,
Cleanse me of every love,
Spare none.

Mary, most high
Queen of Heaven,
Mirror of God in Heaven's
High seat,

Crowned, God-covered,
Awful Virgin,
Praying, I swoon before
Thy feet.

Mary, meet me,
Mother, greet me
When my salvation
Is complete.
