A Golden Hail Mary

One Fervent “Hail Mary,”

With love and thought said,

Is better than volumes of

Prayers poorly read.

 

If time and one’s duties

Prevent a long prayer,

Just say one “Hail Mary”

From the heart and with care.

 

The greatest of blessings

From Mary it brings;

Like flowers and birds

And the waters of springs.

 

We never will know

Till before Mary’s throne,

How that daily “Hail Mary”

Brought us to her home.
