Oh, Flower of Carmel, we greet Thee!
Mother and Queen all Merciful —
Our Life, our Sweetness and our Hope.
To thee – we exiles, children of Eve, lift our crying.
To thee – we send our sighs — mourning and weeping
in this valley of tears.
Hasten, then, we pray, Our Intercessor and Mother.
Look with pity and eyes of compassionate love upon
And, after, when this earthly exile shall be ended,
Please show us thy womb’s most Blessed Fruit,
thy Son, Jesus.
O Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Flower of Carmel,
Pray for us.
