Song search challenge: "Mother Dearest think that never here on earth it has been heard..."

One of our TCS members, tinaway-48, is looking for an old Catholic hymn, writing:

We used to sing it in May when I was in grammar school (St. Thomas More, Paradise, CA). The first verse went: "Mother Dearest think that never here on earth it has been heard that in sorrows whatsoever men to thee in vain have fled."

Can anyone help locate this song? I have had no luck so far. The lyrics are reminiscent of the Memorare.
