Beata virgo Maria
Esto nobis propitia.

Sub tuum praesidium confugimus.

Sancta dei genitrix,
Esto nostra consolatrix,
Tu es scelerum ablutrix.

Immaculata et innupta virgo, gloriosa regina mundi, intercede pro nobis ad dominum.

O virgo Maria,
Dei mater pia,
Esto nobis propitia
Ut vivamus in gloria.

Holy mother of God, be our consoler, you are the purger of misdeeds.

O virgin Mary, pious mother of God, be gracious to us, so that we may live in glory.
