Edition notes: The harmonization is entirely my own. I would enjoy being informed of any garish mistakes in it. I compiled the melody and lyrics from various sources which I believe to be in the public domain.

O come to the throne of grace,
O come to the heart most pure!
To Mary, our hope of life,
In whom salvation is sure.

O Lady of Fatima, hail!
Immaculate Mother of grace;
O pray for us, help us today,
Thou hope of the human race!

Immaculate Heart! we kneel
To consecrate all to thee:
The present, its pain and joy,
The future, all it may be.

The sun at thy royal word
Spun round like a splendid toy;
The rose petals showering down
Proclaimed thee Cause of our Joy.

The Rosary, white and gold,
We take from thy Virgin hand;
A pledge of the power of God
To heal and strengthen our land.

O Mother of Sorrows, hail!
We mourn for the evil done.
O soften our selfish hearts,
And lead us back to thy Son.

O Mother of all mankind,
Lead Russia back home again,
That over a peaceful world
Thy heart may graciously reign.
