Hail, Vir-gin! Dear-est Ma-ry, Our love-ly Queen of May,
O spot-less, bless-ed La-dy! Thy chil-dren hum-bly bend-ing,
A-round Thy shrine so dear, With heart and voice as-scend-ing,
Sweet Ma-ry, hear our pray'r, Sweet Ma ry, hear our pray'r.


  1. Be-hold earth's blos soms spring-ing
    In beau-teous form and hue;
    All na-ture glad-ly bring-ing
    Her sweet-est charms to you.
  2. We'll ga-ther fresh bright flo-wers,
    To bind or fair Queen's brow,
    From gay and ver-dant bow-ers,
    We haste to crown thee now,
  1. The rose and li-ly wreath-ing,
    the hum-ble vio-let fair,
    To thee their per-fume brea-thing,
    To grace yout wreath we brought,
  2. The mig-no-nette, the li-lac,
    And sweet for-get-me-not,
    The e-glan-tine and myr-tle,
    To grace your wreath we brought,
  1. The he-lio-trope, sweet type of love,
    And star of Beth-l'em too,
    The li-ly of the val-ley,
    Com-plete the wreath for you,
  2. And now, our bles-sed Mo-ther,
    Smile on our fes-tal day,
    Ac-cept our wreath of flo-wers,
    And be our Queen of May.
