Holy Queen, we come before thee,
Queen of purity divine,
Make us love thee, we implore thee,
Make us truly to be thine.
Thou by faith the gates unfolding
Of the kingdom in the skies
Hast to us, by faith beholding,
Shown the land of Paradise.
Teach thy children, holy Mother,
How to conquer ev’ry sin,
How to love and help each other,
How eternal life to win
Thou to whom a Child was given
Greater than the sons of men,
Coming down from highest heaven
To create the world again.
Oh, by that Almighty Maker
Whom thyself a virgin bore,
Oh, by that supreme Creator
Whom you praise forevermore,
By the hope thy name inspires,
By our doom reversed through thee,
Help us, Queen of angel choirs,
To a blest eternity.
