Salve Regina – Hail Holy Queen

Hail, Holy Queen, mother of mercy,
our life, our sweetness, and our hope.

To you we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
to you we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.

Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this, our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

V– Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God
R– That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Salve Regina

Salve, Regina, Mater misericordiæ,
vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.

Ad te clamamus exsules filii Hevæ,
Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle.

Eia, ergo, advocata nostra, illos tuos
misericordes oculos ad nos converte;
Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.

O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo Maria.

V Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genitrix,
R Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.

Salve Regina is said mostly at the end of the fifth decade of the Holy Rosary. It was composed during the Middle Ages and initially appeared in Latin. It was later translated into modern languages.
