God gave you a high heavenly place
as mother of his Son, Jesus Christ,
yet you still belong to the families of the earth.
Tree of life,
you bore the fruit of our salvation
because you believed God's word to you.
Mother of life,
Mother of our Salvation,
Revealer of Grace,
stand by us as we approach your Son.
Pray for us sinners.
May he see your innocence and forgive our faults;
May he remember your humility and pardon our pride.
Mother of God,
so many graces and privileges are yours.
The Lord looked kindly on you.
With all the saints intercede for us,
that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.
We turn to you for protection,
holy Mother of God.
Listen to our prayers
and help us in our needs.
Save us from every danger,
glorious and blessed Virgin.
