Holy Santa Maria, sweetest guide, save me
By leading me to your Son’s lasting love;
You are the fountain of Christ’s clemency,
Freshly flowing with living water.
You swiftly circle the great globe of Earth,
Eager to show us the easier road to Heaven;
You lead us on the peaceful path to Beauty,
On a way that is lit by your most holy Sun.
Riding on the white charger of chastity,
You protect us with the lance of justice;
Warmed by the Sun’s splendid rays, your
Soul is surrounded by the halo of truth.
Pray wholeheartedly to His Divine Majesty,
And ask that He bestow on us holy devotion;
May the good God grace us with the grand
Gifts and fervent fire of the Holy Spirit.
