0 Mother of Perpetual Help,
grant that I may ever invoke thy most powerful name,
which is the safeguard of the living
and the salvation of the dying.
0 purest Mary, 0 sweetest Mary,
let thy name henceforth be ever on my lips.
Delay not, 0 Blessed Lady,
to help me, whenever I call on thee;
for, in all my temptations,
in all my needs, I shall never cease to call on thee,
ever repeating thy sacred name, Mary, Mary.
0 what consolation, what sweetness,
what confidence, what emotion,
fill my soul when I utter thy sacred name,
or even only think of thee.
I thank the Lord for having given thee,
for my good so sweet, so powerful, so lovely a name.
But I will not be content with merely uttering thy name.
Let my love for thee prompt me ever to hail thee,
Mother of Perpetual Help.
Say 3 Hail Mary…
