mary-mother-of-god-pietaRemember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known,
 that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored they help,
or sought thy intercession was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.

To thee I come, before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
