Immaculate Mary or Immaculate Mother is a Roman Catholic Marian prayer. Also known as the Lourdes Hymn, sung in honour of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It was written by Abbe Gaignet to a traditional French tune and is used principally at the shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes. If sung for a non-Catholic service, check with your pastor if this works for your denomination or non-denomination.
