Priez pour paix Doulce Vierge Marie

Language: French (Français)

Priez pour paix Doulce Vierge Marie
Reyne des cieulx et du monde maîtresse
Faictes prier par vostre courtoisie
Saints et Saintes et prenez vostre adresse
Vers vostre Fils Requerant sa haultesse
Qu'il Lui plaise son peuple regarder
Que de son sang a voulu racheter
En déboutant guerre qui tout desvoye
De prières ne vous vueillez lasser 
Priez pour paix, priez pour paix
Le vray trésor de joye.

Pray for peace

Language: English after the French (Français)

Pray for peace, sweet Virgin Mary,
Queen of Heaven and mistress of the world. 
In your courtesy, have 
the saints pray too, 
and address your Son,
begging His Highness to deign to look on His people, 
whom He redeemed with His blood, 
and to banish war which destroys all. 
Do not weary of our prayers. 
Pray for peace, pray for peace, 
the true treasure of joy.
