All Hail Victorious Lady

I composed this hymn to Our Lady under her title Our Lady of Victory, to which I have a particular devotion.

All hail victorious Lady,
Our Mother and our Queen,
Unfailing Help of Christians,
And Virgin most serene.

From age to age thy succor
To saints thou dost supply;
The sinful and the needy
To thee for refuge fly.

For thou, unconquered Lady,
Hast crushed all heresies;
Thy fiat hast reversèd
The fall of Mother Eve.

O glorious Maria,
In wondrous paradox
Thy womb didst bear thy Maker,
The true and only God!

We pray thee gracious Lady,
In all our needs and cares,
To Christ, thy Son, our Savior,
All our petitions bear.

And by thine intercession,
Obtain us every grace,
That we may be made holy,
And come to see God’s face.
