Salve Regina

I wrote an English version of the "Salve Regina", because I don't like English translation in the hymnals.

(tune: Salve Regina)
Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
Our life, our sweetness, and our hope, Hail Mary.
To you we cry, poor banished children of Eve
To you do we sigh, groaning and weeping,
In this valley of tears.
Therefore please come, our consolation,
And turn those eyes, your merciful eyes towards us,
In our devastation,
And show to us the blessed fruit of your womb,
Jesus, after this banishment of sin and gloom.
O gentle, O holy, O loving, Sweet Virgin Mary
