Lyrics:  
O Sanctissima, O Piissima
Dulcis Virgo Maria
Mater amata, Intemerata
Ora, Ora Pro Nobis

Tota pulchra es, O Maria
Et macula non est in te
Mater amata intemerata
Ora, ora pro nobis

Sicut lilium inter spinas
Sic Maria inter filias
Mater amata intemerata
Ora ora pro nobis


 
In miseria, in angustia
Ora Virgo pro nobis
Pro nobis ora in mortis hora
Ora, ora pro nobis

Tu solatium et refugium
Virgo Mater Maria
Quidquid optamus per te speramus
Ora, ora pro nobis

A most lovely Roman Catholic hymn, first published in Latin around the year 1794. The tune is believed to be a traditional Sicilian melody

I can remember this from my early childhood and it's a wondeful grace that young people today are discovering many of the treasures hidden away during the wayward and damaging times of the 60's and beyond. God is restoring beauty to His church and music helps us to focus our minds and souls on Jesus

There are a number of versions in English as well as German but they are not translations. The original Latin text is a tribute to Mary's state of purity and grace and asks her to pray for us.
