Full text: 

Gaude, virgo mater pura,
Certa manens et secura
Quod haec tua gaudia

Non cessabunt nec decrescent
Sed durabunt et florescent
per aeterna saecula.

Exaltata es, sancta dei genitrix, super choros angelorum ad caelestia regna, intercede pro nobis.

English translation: 

Rejoice virgin pure mother remaining assured that these your delights will not cease nor diminish, but they will last and flourish through the eternal ages.

You were elevated, holy mother of God, above the choirs of the angels to the celestial reigns, intercede for us.
