Behold at thy feet, 0 Mother of Perpetual Help,
a wretched sinner who has recourse to thee and confides in thee.
0 Mother of mercy,
have pity on me.
I hear thee called by all the refuge and the hope of sinners:
be then, my refuge and my hope.
Assist me, for the love of Jesus Christ;
stretch forth thy hand to a miserable fallen creature
who recommends himself to thee,
and who devotes himself to thy service for ever.
I bless and thank Almighty God,
who in His mercy has given me this confidence in thee,
which I hold to be a pledge of my eternal salvation.
It is true that in the past I have miserably fallen into sin,
because I had not recourse to thee.
I know that, with thy help, I shall conquer.
I know too, that thou wilt assist me,
if I recommend myself to thee;
but I fear that, in time of danger,
I may neglect to call on thee,
and thus lose my soul.
The grace, then, I ask of thee,
and this I beg,
with all the fervor of my soul,
that in all the attacks of hell I may ever have recourse to thee.
O Mary, help me.
0 Mother of Perpetual Help,
never suffer me to lose my God.
Say 3 Hail Mary…
