1._Hail, _ Ma-ry, we ac-claim Thee,
Mo-_ ther and _ Vir-gin blest,
Thy _ chil-dren love to name thee,
our _ hope, our _ joy, our rest,
O, ho-ly Queen tran-scen-dent,
Thou _ light-est _ all our way.
Reign glo-rious and re-splen-dent,
in _ realms of _ end-less day.



2. Hail _ Ma-ry, Mo-ther ten-der,
true _ sun-light _ of the soul.
To _ thee our hearts sur-ren-der,
O, _ bring us _ to our goal,
Thy mer-cy now re-veal-ing,
though _ oft a-_ far we roam,
Like bells of ev'n-ing peal-ing,
Thy _ sweet voice _ calls us home.

Our _ joy-ful _ songs we raise,
Thy pray'rs for-e-ver bles-sing,
We _ sing thy _ ceas-less praise.
