Hail, O Queen of Heaven enthroned!
Hail, by Angels mistress owned!
Root of Jesse! Gate of morn!
When the world’s true Light was born.
Glorious Virgin, joy to thee,
Loveliest whom in heaven they see;
Fairest thou where all are fair!
Plead with Christ our sins to spare.
V. Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O sacred Virgin.
R. Give me strength against thine enemies.
