Composer: Anonymous (Traditional)
Original text and translations
O Mary of Graces and mother of God,
We tred in the paths that the righteous have trod
And prayest thou save me from Evil's control
And mayest thou save me in body and soul.
And mayest thou save me by land and by sea
And mayest thou save me from tortures to be
May the guard of the Angels around me abide
May God be before me and God at my side.
May a smile of thy mercy from heaven come down
When my heart would leave thee and cleave to the ground
And when this poor body returns to its sod
May thy loving arms bear my soul to its God.
