Ave Maria spiritus sancti
Fecundata rore,
Conservato pariens
Castitatis flore.

Ave nostrum gaudium,
Nostra spes et vita
Cuius ope salus
Aegris est impartita.

 

English translation: 

Hail Mary, made fertile by the dew of the Holy Spirit, giving birth even though the blossom of chastity remained untouched.

Hail our joy, our hope and life, by whose doing health is granted to the sick people.
