Hail Queen of the hearts, Mother of God,

in the hour of anguish we longed
for your sigh, and now in you we are looking for
the reason for our living. Your sovereignty
passes through our time when we refuse
the paroxysm of contingency and the easy

trends. Be friendly to our king and us all:
though away from perfection we are thirsty
of the justice that Christ brought into the world

and that now is being trampled on
