Fatima Hymn

The thirteenth of May
In the Cova da Iria
Appeared, oh so brilliant
The Virgin Mary.

The Virgin Maria
Encircled with light
Our own dearest Mother
And heaven’s delight.

To three little shepherds
Our Lady appeared
The light of her grace
To her Son souls endeared.

With war and its evils
The whole world was seething
And countless of thousands
Were mourning and weeping.

To save all poor souls
Who had wandered astray
With sweet words of comfort
She asked us to pray.
By honouring Mary
And loving her Son.
