May I tread in the paths that the righteous have trod.
And mayest Thou save me from evil's control,
And mayest Thou save me in body and soul.
And mayest Thou save me by land and by sea,
And mayest Thou save me from tortures to be.
May the guard of the angels above me abide,
May God be before me and God at my side.
O Mary of Graces, oh answer my plea,
Under crosses in trials, to Thee do I flee.
O teach me Sweet Mother to follow His Will,
To journey with courage up Calvery's Hill.
O Mary my Mother and Mother of all,
Be my Guide and Protectress that I may not fall.
And mayest Thou lead me to Heaven above,
With Saints and Angels I'll share in Thy Love.
