Hail Thee, Blessed Daughter

Hail thee, blessed daughter
Of God’s chosen race,
Mary’s faithful mother
by the Lord’s fond grace;

Hail, thee, kindly patron
Of the Christian home,
Be its walls of marble,
Or of lowly loam,

Hail thee, holy matron,
Next to Heaven’s Queen,
Thou the fairest flower
In the world unseen.

Bless thy loving children
On life’s weary way;
Help that all reach heaven
at the end of day.
