O MOST EXCELLENT, MOST GLORIOUS


O Most excellent, most glorious, 
most holy and ever inviolate Virgin Mary, 
Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
Queen of the whole world and Mistress of every creature; 
thou forsakest no one, 
thou despisest no one, 
thou sendest away disconsolate no one 
who comes to thee with a pure and lowly heart; 
despise me not for my countless grievous sins, 
neither forsake me for my exceeding iniquities, 
nor for the hardness and uncleanness of my heart; 
cast me not away, who am thy servant, 
from thy grace and love. 
Graciously hear me, a miserable sinner, 
trusting in thy tender mercy; 
come to my assistance, O most loving Virgin Mary, 
in all my tribulations, trials and necessities; 
obtain for me of thy dear Son, 
Almighty God and our Lord Jesus Christ, 
the forgiveness and remission of all my sins, 
and the grace of fear and the love of thee; 
health likewise and chastity of body, 
and deliverance from all evils and dangers 
which beset both soul and body.

In my last moments do thou graciously assist me, 
and deliver my soul and the souls of my parents, 
brothers, sisters and friends, kinsmen and benefactors, 
and of all faithful Christians, 
both living and departed, 
from eternal darkness and from all evil, 
by the grace of Him whom thou didst bear in thy sacred womb for nine long months, 
and didst lay in the manger with thine own pure hands, 
even our Lord Jesus Christ thy Son 
who is blessed for ever.

Amen.
