A PRAYER TO OUR BLESSED MOTHER
Take my hand, O Blessed Mother.
Hold me firmly lest I fall.
I grow nervous while walking and Humbly on thee call.
Guide me over every crossing,
Watch me when I’m on the stairs.
Let me know that you’re beside me.
Listen to my fervent prayers.
Bring me to my destination,
Safely along the way.
Bless my every undertaking,
And when evening creeps upon me,
I’ll never fear to be alone.
Once again, O Blessed Mother,
Take my hand and lead me home.
