Lenten Mission!

Tonight at vespers Father decided to close with the Salve Regina. We began ok, but after a few lines we crashed and burned. Let's just say it's FAR easier to sing it when it's written in front of you. =D So it's the Ford family's Lenten mission to memorize it. (We have it posted on our fridge right now.)

Salve, Regina, Mater misericordiae,
vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.
ad te clamamus
exsules filii Hevae,
ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle.
Eia, ergo, advocata nostra, illos tuos
misericordes oculos ad nos converte;
et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.
O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo Maria.
