Holy Mary now we crown thee
Honored Queen of all our race;
Noble Virgin, may our tribute
Win thy love and gain us grace.
Stain of sin hath never marred thee,
Mankind’s only spotless bloom;
God whose might exceeds the heavens
Thou hast sheltered in thy womb.
Glorious Queen, look down in kindness,
While before thy sight we stand,
Bring God’s blessing to thy children,
Watch our homes and guard our land.
Gate of heaven, thou wert Mother
To the King of heav’n and earth,
Now be Mother to thy subjects,
In our souls give Jesus birth.
