Day by day, O dear Lord, three things I pray:
to see you more clearly,
love you more dearly,
follow you more nearly,
day by day, by day, by day.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known, that anyone
who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help,
or sought thine intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother.
To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word of Incarnate,
despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me.

Rosary Prayers: O My Jesus
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell,
and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of your Mercy.
Rosary Prayers: Hail Holy Queen
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
Prayer after the Rosary
O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant, we beseech Thee, that, meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord.
Now, Lord, you have kept your word:
let your servant go in peace.
With my own eyes I have seen the salvation
which you have prepared in the sight of every people:
a light to reveal you to the nations
and the glory of your people Israel.
Glory be to the Father
and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
