Memorare

Memorare, o piissima Virgo Maria,
non esse auditum a saeculo, quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia,
tua implorantem auxilia, tua petentem suffragia, 
esse derelictum.
Ego tali animatus confidentia,
ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro,
ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto.
Noli, Mater Verbi,
verba mea despicere,
sed audi propitia et exaudi.
Amen.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to Thy protection,
implored Thy aid or sought Thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, 
I fly unto thee, Virgin of Virgins, my Mother;
to Thee do I come, before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful,
despise not my petitions, but in Thy clemency, hear and answer me.
Amen.
