O Queen of the Holy Rosary We share thy joy and pain, O Queen of the Holy Rosary, And long to see the glory Each mystery blends with thine, Of Christ’s triumphant reign. The sacred life of Jesus, Oh, teach us, Holy Mary, In every step divine. To live each mystery, Thy soul was His fair garden, And gain by patient suff’ring The virgin breast His throne, Thy glory won by thee. Thy thoughts, His faithful mirror, (E.M. Shepcote) Reflecting Him alone. Oh, teach us, Holy Mary,
