Immaculate Mary

Immaculate Mary or Immaculate Mother is a Roman Catholic Marian prayer. It also known as the Lourdes Hymn, sung in honour of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.[1]

It was written by Abbe Gaignet to a traditional French tune and is used principally at the shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes.


Immaculate Mary, your praises we sing,
You reign now in splendour with Jesus our King.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!
In Heaven the Blessed your glory proclaim,
On earth we your children invoke your sweet name.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!
We pray for the Church, our true mother on earth
And bless, Holy Mary, the land of our birth.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!

Perpetual Help Novena version

The version sung at novena services honouring Our Lady of Perpetual Help has a different set of lyrics:

Immaculate Mother, to You do we plead.
To ask God, our Father, for help in our need.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!
We pray for our Country, the land of our birth;
We pray for all nations, that peace be on Earth!
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!
