Holy Queen! We Bend Before Thee

Holy Queen! we bend before thee,
Queen of purity divine!
Make us love thee, we implore thee,
Make us truly to be thine.

Teach, oh, teach us, Holy Mother,
How to conquer ev’ry sin;
How to love and help each other;
How the prize of life to win.

Thou to whom a Child was given
Greater than the sons of men,
Coming down from highest heaven
To create the world again.

By the hope thy name inspires!
By our doom reversed through thee;
Help us, Queen of angel choirs!
To a blest eternity!

L. J. Kavanagh and James M. McLaughlin, Crown Hymnal (Boston: Ginn and Company, 1912).
