(R)
Hail, Virgin, dearest Mary!
Our lovely Queen of May,
O spotless blessed Lady,
Our lovely Queen of May.

 

2. Behold earth's blossoms springing,
In beauteous form and hue;
All nature gladly bringing,
Her sweetest charms to you.
(R)

4. And now our blessed Mother,
Smile on our festal day;
Accept our wreath of flowers,
And be our Queen of May.
(R)
1. Thy children humbly bending,
A round thy shrine so dear;
With heart and voice ascending,
Sweet Mary hear our prayer.
(R)
3. We'll gather fresh, bright flowers,
To bind our fair Queen's brow;
From gay and verdant bowers,
We haste to crown thee now.
(R)
