Mother Dear Though much Afflicted

The author and composer of this hymn about Our Lady of Perpetual Help are unknown.

Hymn-books which it has been published in include the "Manual of Select Catholic Hymns and Devotions for the Use of Schools, Colleges, Academies and Congregations" published in New York in 1925. Based on this, it is likely (though not certain) to now be in the public domain in the USA.

No examples or sheet music have been found.



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.
