1 Hail to the Queen who reigns above,
Mother of Clemency and Love,
Hail thou our Hope, Life, Sweetness; we
Eve's banish'd Children cry to thee

2 We from this wretched Vale of Tears
Send Sighs and Groans unto thy Ears;
Oh! then, sweet Advocate, bestow
A pitying Look on us below.

3 After this Exile, let us see
Our blessed Jesus, born of thee:
O merciful, O pious Maid,
O gracious Mary, lend thine Aid.

Hermannus Contractus (also known as Herimanus Augiensis or Hermann von Reichenau) was the son of Count Wolverad II von Altshausen. He was born 18 February, 1013 at Altshausen (Swabia). He was a cripple at birth, but intellectually gifted. Therefore his parents sent him to be taught by Abbot Berno on the island of Reichenau. He took his monastic vows here and died on Reichenau 21 September, 1054. He was a mathematician, astronomer, musician, chronicler, and poet, among other things. He is frequently credited as the author of "Alma Redemptoris Mater" and "Salve Regina" Dianne Shapiro, from Schlager, P. (1910). Hermann Contractus. In The Catholic Encyclopedia.
