Salve virgo virginum,
Salve lumen luminum,
Ave salus hominum.

Mater Christi,
Peperisti
       Regem regum hominum.

Gaude, pura
Spes futura
       Sperantium
Mortis hora
Dominum exora
       Ne damnemur in aeternum.

Speciosa
       Dux errantium,
Gloriosa
       Vox laetantium.
In hac valle sis te laudantium
Consolatrix apud patrem et filium.

English translation: 

Hail, virgin of virgins. Hail, light of lights. Hail, salvation of the humankind.

Mother of Christ, you bore the king of kings of men.

Rejoice, o pure, hope of those who await the things to come. Pray the Lord at the hour of death, so that we be not damned for eternity.

Beautiful leader of the lost, glorious voice of the joyous, be the solace of those who praise you in this valley, by the Father and the Son.
