I have been searching for the English version of this very beautiful prayer to Our Lady. I finally found it.  This has been traditionally said in my family home every evening in my mother tongue. It seems to encompass all intentions to Our Blessed Mother . littlewings littlewings

OUR LADY OF THIS HOUSE

O sweet and gentle Lady, Immaculate Mother of God,
we choose Thee this day to be the Mistress and Lady of this house.
Guard it, dear Mother from pestilence, fire, lightning, and tempests;
from schisms and heresies,
from depredations of burglars and the malice of enemies.
Protect its inmates, sweet Mary; watch over their going out and coming in,
and preserve them from sudden death.
Keep us from all sin and harm, and pray for us to God,
that we may live in His service and depart this life in His grace. ------ Amen.

Mary the Dawn, Christ the Perfect Day;
Mary the Gate, Christ the Heav’nly Way!
Mary the Root, Christ the Mystic Vine;
Mary the Grape, Christ the Sacred Wine!
Mary the Wheat-sheaf, Christ the Living Bread;
Mary the Rose-Tree, Christ the Rose Blood-red!
Mary the Font, Christ the Cleansing Flood;
Mary the Chalice, Christ the Saving Blood!
Mary the Temple, Christ the Temple’s Lord;
Mary the Shrine, Christ the God adored!
Mary the Beacon, Christ the Haven’s Rest;
Mary the Mirror, Christ the Vision Blest!
Mary the Mother, Christ the Mother’s Son.
Both ever blest while endless ages run.
Amen.
