I compassionate thee, O most sorrowful Mother!
Thy heart was pierced with a sword of grief
when Simeon foretold to thee in the Temple
the ignominious death and the desolation of thy Divine and most dear Son,
which thou west destined one day to witness.
By the great anguish of thy suffering heart,
O gracious Queen of the universe,
impress upon my mind,
in life and in death,
the sacred Passion of Jesus and thine own sorrows.
