Hail Holy Queen
Hail, Holy Queen,
Mother of mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry,
poor banished children of Eve;
To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping
in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious Advocate,
thine eyes of mercy towards us,
and after this our exile
show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
pray for us,
most holy Mother of God,
that we made be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray.
O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech Thee, that meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ Our Lord.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided.

O Virgin of virgins, my Mother;
to thee I come; before thee I stand
sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions,
but, in thy mercy, hear and answer me.

Prayer taken from the Byzantine Catholic Liturgy
Remembering our most holy, most pure, most blessed and glorious Lady,
the Mother of God and Ever-Virgin Mary with all the Saints,
let us commend ourselves and one another, and our whole life
to Christ our God.
O gentle Protectress of Christians,
unfailing Mediatrix before the Creator,
do not despise the prayerful voices of sinners;
but, in your goodness, hasten to assist us,
who trustfully cry out to you:
Inspire us to prayer, and hasten to hear our supplication.
Intercede always, Mother of God,
in behalf of those who honor you.
Mothers cannot be virgins, nor virgins be mothers;
but in you, O Mother of God,
both virginity and motherhood were present.
Therefore, all the people of the earth unceasingly extol you.
Today the Virgin is present in the Church
and with the armies of Saints invisibly prays to God for us.
The Angels worship with the Archangels
and the Apostles rejoice with the Prophets,
because in our behalf, the Mother of God prays to the Eternal God.
It is truly right to call you blessed, O Theotokos:
you are ever- blessed and all-blameless
and the Mother of our God.
Higher in honor than the Cherubim
and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim,
you gave birth to God the Word in virginity.
You are truly Mother of God:
you do we exalt.
