Rejoice, O Mary

Rejoice, O Mary, heav’nly Queen, Gaude, Maria!
Thy grief is changed to joy serene; Alleluia!
O pray for us, Maria!

For He Whom thou wast called to bear, Gaude, Maria!
Did by His death our loss repair, Alleluia!
O pray for us, Maria!

Thy Son has risen from the dead; Gaude, Maria!
He rose with might, as He had said, Alleluia!
O pray for us, Maria!

O pray to God, thou Virgin fair, Ora, Maria!
That we in heav’n thy bliss may share, Alleluia!
O pray for us, Maria!

John G. Hacker, Catholic Hymnal (New York: Schwartz, Kirwin & Fauss, 1920).
