O Mother of Perpetual Help,
grant that I may forever invoke your most powerful name,
which is the safeguard of the living
and the salvation of the dying.
O Purest Mary, O Sweetest Mary,
let your name henceforth be forever on my lips.
Delay not, O Blessed Lady,
to help me whenever I call on you,
for, in all my needs, in all my temptations
I shall never cease to call on you,
ever repeating your sacred name, Mary, Mary.
O what consolation, what sweetness,
what confidence, what emotion fill my soul
when I pronounce your sacred name,
or even only think of you.
I thank God for having given you,
for my good, so sweet, so powerful, so lovely a name.
But I will not be content with merely pronouncing your name:
let my love for you, prompt me ever to hail you,
Mother of Perpetual Help. Amen.
