Memorare
Language: Latin 
Memorare, o piissima Virgo Maria,
non esse auditum a saeculo,
quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia,
tua implorantem auxilia,
tua petentem suffragia,
esse derelictum.
Ego, tali animatus confidentia,
ad te, Virgo virginum, Mater curro,
ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto.
Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere,
sed audi, propitia, et exaudi.
Amen.

Souvenez‑vous
Language: French (Français)  after the Latin 
Souvenez-vous, ô très miséricordieuse Vierge Marie, 
qu'on n'a jamais entendu dire qu'aucun 
de ceux qui ont eu recours à votre protection, 
imploré votre assistance, 
réclamé votre secours, 
ait été abandonné. 
Animé d'une pareille confiance, 
ô Vierge des vierges, ô ma Mère, 
je cours vers vous et, 
gémissant sous le poids de mes péchés, 
je me prosterne à vos pieds.
Ô Mère du Verbe, ne méprisez pas mes prières, 
mais accueillez-les favorablement 
et daignez les exaucer. Amen.
