Full text: 

Salve, mater salvatoris,
Vas electum, vas honoris,
Vas caelestis gratiae.

Ab aeterno vas provisum,
Vas insigne, vas excisum
Manu sapientiae.

Salve verbi sacra parens,
Flos de spina, spina carens
Flos, spineti gloria.

Nos spinetum, nos peccati
Spina sumus cruentati
Sed tu spinae nescia.

English translation: 

Hail, mother of the Saviour, chosen vessel, vessel of honor, vessel of celestial grace.

Vessel foreseen from eternity, marked vessel, vessel carved by the hand of Wisdom.

Hail, holy mother of the Word, flower [bloomed] from a thorn, flower lacking any thorns,

Glory of the thicket.

We are the thicket, we are tortured by the thorn of sin, but you don´t know this thorn.
