Full text: 

Salve virgo salutata,
Salve partu decorata
Salvatoris omnium.

Salve gaudens resurgentem, 
Salve plaudens ascendentem
Ad caeli palatium.

Salve scandens ad superna,
Tuos famulos guberna
Ducens ante filium.

English translation: 

Hail, blessed virgin, hail, made beautiful by giving birth to the savior of all.

Hail to you, rejoicing for the risen, hail to you, applauding him who rises to heaven's palace.

Hail to you ascending the heights, steer your servants leading us in front of the son.
