Beata dei genitrix Maria, templum Domini, spiritus sancti sacrarium. Sola sine exemplo placuisti domino.

Ave virgo mater dei,
Ave salus meae spei,
Ave plena gratia,
Esto nobis propitia.

Beata virgo Maria, ut habeamus gloriam, tua misericordia impetra nobis veniam.

Post partum, virgo, inviolata permansisti.
Dei genitrix intercede pro nobis.

Blessed Mary, mother of God, temple of the Lord, sanctuary of the Holy Spirit, you alone without precedent were loved by the Lord.

Hail virgin mother of God, hail salvation of my hope, hail full of grace, be gracious to us.

Blessed virgin Mary, so that we may partake to the glory, procure us forgiveness with your mercy. 

O virgin, you remained untouched after having given birth.
Mother of God, intercede for us.
