Full text: 

Gaude, virgo mater pura,
Certa manens et secura
Per 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 o virgin pure mother, since your delights remain assured and preserved through this life.

They will not cease or diminish, but last and flourish through the eternal ages.

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