O, Most Beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel,
Fruitful Vine, Splendor of Heaven,
Blessed Mother of the Son of God,
Assist me in this, my necessity.
O, Star of the Sea, help me and show me herein
You are my mother.
O, Holy Mary, Mother of God
Queen of Heaven and Earth,
I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart
To succor me in this necessity.
There are none that can withstand your power.
O, show me herein you are my mother.
O, Mary, conceived without sin,
Pray for us who have recourse to you.
Sweet Mother, I place this cause in your hands.
