O Queen of the Holy Rosary

O Queen of the Holy Rosary,
O bless us as we pray,
And offer thee our roses
In garlands day by day,
While from our Father's garden,
With loving hearts and bold,
We gather to thine honor
Buds white and red and gold.

O Queen of the Holy Rosary,
Each myst'ry blends with thine
The sacred life of Jesus
In ev'ry step divine,
Thy soul was His fair garden,
Thy virgin breast His throne,
Thy thoughts His faithful mirror,
Reflecting Him alone.

Sweet Lady of the Rosary, 
White roses let us bring, 
And lay them round thy footstool, 
Before our Infant King.
The nursling in thy bosom, 
God's Son was fain to be
The child of thy obedience 
And spotless purity.

Dear Lady of the Rosary!
Red roses cast we down
But let thy fingers weave them
Into a worthy crown.
For how can we poor sinners
Do aught but weep with thee,
When in thy train we follow
Our God to Calvary.

O Queen of the Holy Rosary,
We share thy joy and pain,
And long to see the glory
Of Christ's triumphant reign.
Oh, teach us holy Mary,
To live each mystery,
And gain by patient suff'ring
The glory won by thee.
