071 - Hail, Queen of Heaven
1. Hail, queen of heaven, the ocean star
Guide of the wanderer here below
Thrown on life’s surge, we claim Thy care
Save us from peril and from woe
Mother of Christ, star of the sea
Pray for the wanderer, pray for me.
2. O gentle, chaste, and spotless maid
We sinners make our prayers tho’Thee!
Remind Thy Son that he has paid
The price of our iniquity
Virgin most pure, star of the sea
Pray for the sinner, pray for me.
3. Sojourners in this vale of tears
To Thee, blest advocate, we cry
Pity our sorrows, calm our fears
And soothe with hope our misery
Refuge in grief, star of the sea
Pray for the mourner, pray for me.
4. And while to Him who reigns above
In God-head one, in persons three
The source of life, of grace, of love
Homage we pay on bended knee
Do Thou bright queen, star of the sea
Pray for Thy children, pray for me.
