Salut Reine, mère miséricordieuse
Language: French (Français)  after the Latin 
Salut Reine, mère miséricordieuse,
Salut, notre vie, notre douceur, et notre espoir, salut.

Reine vers toi nous crions, vers toi nous soupirons, fils d'Ève exilés.

Reine vers toi nous soupirons gémissant 
et pleurant dans cette vallée de larmes.

Ah donc, notre avocate, 
tourne tes yeux miséricordieux 
vers nous,

et montre-nous Jésus, 
le fruit béni de tes entrailles, après cet exil.

Ô clémente, ô pieuse, ô douce Vierge Marie.
