The Regina Coeli

THE REGINA COELI

O Queen of heaven, rejoice, alleluia.

For He whom thou didst merit to bear, alleluia.

Has risen, as He said, alleluia.

Pray for us to God, alleluia.

V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.

R. For the Lord has risen indeed, alleluia.

Let us pray.  O God, who gavest joy to the world through the resurrection of thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ: grant that we may obtain, through his Virgin Mother Mary, the joys of everlasting life. Through the same Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.
