Bright Queen of Heaven

Bright Queen of heav’n,
Virgin most fair,
Mary most gentle,
List to our prayer;
Mother, protect us,
Aid to us bring,
Sweetly enfold us,
‘Neath shelt’ring wing.

Star of the Queen,
Shedding soft light,
Solace in sorrow,
Rest ‘mid the night.
Send in our slumbers
Peace from above;
Shine on us ever,
Bright star of love.

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