O Mother of Perpetual Help
To thee we come imploring help
Behold us here from far and near
To ask of thee our help to be.

Perpetual Help we beg of thee
Our soul from sin and sorrow free
Direct our wandring feet aright
And be thyself our own true light

The starlight of this earthly strife
And Mother when I come to die
Be Thou thy spouse and Jesus nigh

MARY DEAREST OF ALL MOTHERS


Mary dearest of all mothers
Given us by God's decree
All forlorn and cheerless mortals
Find their sweetest hope in Thee
Oh how mild how fair endearing
Is thine image hailed revering

Chorus
Mother to our aid o'er speed
Helping us in eve'ry need
Mary help Mary Help

Earthly sovereighns' empty glories
In our Lady's splendor cease
No one sways the golden scepter
With her gentle pow'r and peace
On thy knee O Blessed Mother
Sat enthroned our God our Brother

Ev'ry sword must break and shiver
Drawn against our Queen divine
And the base and haughty sinner
Blushing flee before her shrine
Proudest schemes like vapor airy
Melt before the glance of Mary

Chorus
Mother to our aid o'er speed
Helping us in eve'ry need
Mary help Mary Help

Earthly sovereighns' empty glories
In our Lady's splendor cease
No one sways the golden scepter
With her gentle pow'r and peace
On thy knee O Blessed Mother
Sat enthroned our God our Brother

Ev'ry sword must break and shiver
Drawn against our Queen divine
And the base and haughty sinner
Blushing flee before her shrine
Proudest schemes like vapor airy
Melt before the glance of Mary

MARY FROM THY IMAGE

Mary from thy sacred image With those eyes so sadly sweet
Mother of Perpetual Help See us kneeling at thy feet
In thine arms thy child thou bearest Source of all thy joy and woe
What thy bliss how deep thy sorrows Mother Thou alone canst know
Mother Thou alone canst know

On thy face He is not gazing Nor on us in turned His glance
For His anxious look He fixes On the Cross the Reed and Lance
To thy hand His hands are clinging As a child would cling in fear
Of that vision of the torments Of His Passion drawing near
Of His Passion drawing near


MOTHER DEAR THOUGH MUCH AFFLICTED

Mother dear tho' much afflicted
Racked with pain or sorely tempted
Straitened in this earthly strife
Yet our hearts know naught of sadness
Happy thee to call with gladness
Mother of Perpetual Help
Mother of Perpetual Help

Mother faithful deign to hear us
With protecting hand be near us
Through the day and through the night
Trusting thee we walk quite fearless
To aid asking Virgin peerless
Mother of Perpetual Help
Mother of Perpetual Help
