Mother Thrice Admirable, Mother of Grace,
Teach us your enemies bravely to face,
Never regarding their number and might,
Spreading your love over the earth’s dark night,
So that the world through you made new,
pay to your Son his homage due.
Mother with your Child from heaven,
descend upon our nation’s plains,
so that in following your footsteps
it may find true and lasting peace.
Mother and Child, united in love –
through you alone can our nation be healed.
