A Hymn to the Blessed Virgin…

Note: The Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary and a hymn in her honor are all recited as part of the Rosary in Nigeria. Since Our Lord requested that we simply pray the Rosary immediately followed by the Chaplet, you may omit those two items and use any Rosary devotion you prefer in place of this one.
