Lyrics

Mother dear tho' much afflicted,
Racked with pain or sorely tempted,
Straitened in this earthly strife.
Yet our hearts know naught of sadness
Happy thee to call with gladness
Mother of Perpetual Help,
Mother of Perpetual Help.

Mother faithful, deign to hear us,
With protecting hand be near us.
Through the day and through the night
Trusting thee we walk quite fearless
To aid asking Virgin peerless
Mother of Perpetual Help,
Mother of Perpetual Help.
