Compline marian hymn

Is there a particular marian hymn that is peferred for lent to end the compline?

eg “queen of heaven, rejoice” is easter-themed
and
"loving mother of the redeemer, gate of heaven star of the sea" is advent and christmas themed

Hello Brain:

According to my April issue of the Magnificat, this is the Marian antiphon to be used until Palm Sunday:

Simeon says to Mary, “Your own soul a sword shall pierce”.

Uam ipsius animam, ait ad Mariam Simeon, pertransibit gladius.

Then for Holy Week, it is the “Sub Tuum Praesidium”

Under your protection we take refuge, O holy Mother of God; do not despise our supplications in time of need, but free us from all dangers, O Virgin ever-blessed.

Ub tuum praesidium confugimus, sancta Dei Genetrix: nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus: sed a periculis cunctis libera nose semper, Virgo gloriosa et benedicta.

And for the Easter season:

Regina caeli laetare, alleluia; quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia; resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia; ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.

Queen of heaven rejoice, alleluia! For He whom you did merit to bear, alleluia, has risen as He said, alleluia! Pray for us to God, alleluia.

God bless.

Ave Regina Caelorum (Hail, Queen of Heaven) is the prescribed Marian antiphon for compline from the Feast of the Purification through Lent. There is is no gray area.

hmm that one isnt in my book

The answer is the: Ave, Regina caelorum

From February 3rd until Wednesday in Holy Week.

Ave, Regina caelorum,
ave, Domina angelorum,
salve, radix, salve, porta,
ex qua mundo lux est orta.

Gaude, Virgo gloriosa,
super omnes speciosa;
vale, o valde decora,
et pro nobis Christum exora.

Queen of the heavens, we hail you,
Hail, Mother of our Redeemer;
You the dawn, the door of morning
Whence the world’s true Light has risen;

Joy to you, O Virgin glorious,
Beautiful beyoud all other;
Hail and all hail, O most gracious,
Intercede for us always to Jesus.

V. Grant that I may praise you, O holy Virgin.
R. Give me strength against your enemies.

 Grant us, O merciful God, protection in our weakness;  that we who celebrate the memory of the holy Mother of God may, through the aid of her intercession, rise again from our sins.  Through the same Christ our Lord.  Amen.
