O star

Hail Queen of Heaven, the Ocean Star

"Hail, Queen of Heaven, the Ocean star" is a hymn written by Father John Lingard, a Catholic priest and historian who, through the works of William Cobbett, helped smooth the passage of the Catholic emancipation act in England.

Hail, Queen of heaven, the ocean star, Guide of the wanderer here below, Thrown on life's surge, we claim thy care, Save us from peril and from woe.

Mother of Christ, O Star of the sea Pray for the wanderer, pray for me.

O gentle, chaste, and spotless Maid, We sinners make our prayers through thee; Remind thy Son that He has paid The price of our iniquity.

Virgin most pure, O star of the sea, Pray for the sinner, pray for me.

And while to Him Who reigns above In Godhead one, in Persons three, The Source of life, of grace, of love, Homage we pay on bended knee:

Do thou, bright Queen, O star of the sea, Pray for thy children, pray for me.
