Mother of Perpetual help, thu
art the dispenser
of every grace that God grants us in our misery.
Thou art the advocate
of the most wretched and abandoned sinners, if they but come to thee.
In thy hands I place my eternal salvation; to thee I entrust my soul.
Count me among thy most faithful servants. Take
me under thy protection; that is enough for me.
If thou doth protect me, I
shall fear nothing: not
my sins, because thou wilt obtain for me their pardon and remission;
the evil spirits,
I fear only that through my own
negligence I may
to recommend myself to thee and so lose my soul.
