Hail Holy Queen

The Hail Holy Queen (also commonly known by its Latin name, the Salve Regina) is one of four special anthems to the Mother of God that have traditionally been part of the Liturgy of the Hours, and which vary depending on the season.    
This prayer is also commonly said at the end of the rosary, in morning prayers, and during the prayers at the end of a Low Mass in the Traditional Latin Mass.

Hail Holy Queen

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy! Hail our life, our sweetness and our hope! To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate your eyes of mercy towards us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
