God the Son, Redeemer of the world, *

God the Holy Spirit, *

Holy Trinity, One God, **

Mother of Sorrows, **

Mother whose soul was pierced by the sword, **

Mother who fled with Jesus into Egypt, **

Mother who sought Him sorrowing for three days, **

Mother who saw Him scourged and crowned with thorns, **

Mother who stood by Him while He hung upon the Cross, **

Mother who received Him into thine arms when He was dead, **

Mother who saw Him buried in the tomb, **

O Mary, Queen of Martyrs, ***

O Mary, comfort of the sorrowful, ***

O Mary, help of the weak, ***

O Mary, strength of the fearful, ***

O Mary, light of the despondent, ***

O Mary, nursing mother of the sick, ***

O Mary, refuge of sinners, ***

Through the bitter Passion of thy Son, ***

Through the piercing anguish of thy heart, ***

Through thy heavy weight of woe, ***

Through thy sadness and desolation, ***

Through thy maternal pity, ***

Through thy perfect resignation, ***

Through thy meritorious prayers, ***

From immoderate sadness, ***

From a cowardly spirit, ***

From an impatient temper, ***

From fretfulness and discontent, ***

From sullenness and gloom, ***

From despair and unbelief, ***

From final impenitence, ***

We sinners, beseech thee, hear us, 

Preserve us from sudden death, ****

Teach us how to die, ****

Succor us in our last agony, ****

Guard us from the enemy, ****

Bring us to a happy end, ****

Gain for us the gift of perseverance, ****

Aid us before the Judgment Seat, ****

Mother of God, ****

Mother most sorrowful, ****

Mother most desolate, ****

Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, spare us, O Lord.

Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, graciously hear us, O Lord.

Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.

** Pray for us.

*** Save us by thy prayers.

**** We beseech thee, hear us.

 

Let us pray

O Lord Jesus Christ, God and Man, grant, we beseech Thee, that Thy dear Mother Mary, whose soul the sword pierced in the hour of Thy Passion, may intercede for us, now, and in the hour of our death, through Thine own merits, O Savior of the world, Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit livest and reignest, God, world without end. Amen.
