Virgin Most Powerful, you use the key of Love
That unlocks sweet surrender in the unknown;
Majestic Madonnina, teach us not to seek
Selfish Scrooge-like control over our lives.
The Holy Spirit conducts a saintly symphony
In the depths of your most immaculate heart;
Brimming with holy joy, He gently and lovingly
Plucks the strings of your obedient soul.
You wondrously wait for us in perpetual peace,
Watchfully protecting us on our journey;
Through God’s grace, transform the bitter
Myrrh of black fears into heavenly hope.
Pure Santa Maria, help us to choose a devout
Life, and resist the glittering baubles of sin;
Pour God’s glorious blessings upon us like
Raindrops of the Lord’s life-giving love.
