Mother of Perpetual help, thou art the dispenser of every grace that God grants us in our misery.
Thou art the advocate of the most wretched and abandoned sinners, if they but come to thee.
In thy hands I place my eternal salvation; to thee I entrust my soul.
Count me among thy most faithful servants. Take me under thy protection; that is enough for me.
If thou doth protect me, I shall fear nothing: not my sins, because thou wilt obtain for me their pardon and remission; not the evil spirits, because thou art mightier than all the powers of Hell; not even Jesus, my Judge, because He is appeased by a single prayer of thine.
I fear only that through my own negligence I may forget to recommend myself to thee and so lose my soul.
