Salve Regina (Monastic Tone)


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


Hail, o holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry,
banished children of Eve;
To thee do we send up our sighs,
Mourning and weeping
in this vale of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
Thine eyes of mercy toward us;
And the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus
Show unto us after this our exile,
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
