Full text: 

Ave mundi domina
Et caeli regina,
Mater dei integra, 
Rosa sine spina.

Tua sit conceptio 
Nostra medicina
Et tua nativitas
Via matutina. 

Tua praesentatio
Nostra sit oblatio 
Et annuntiatio

Et purificatio 
Nostra sit purgatio.

Tua sit assumptio
Nostra salutis via,
Tu nos tecum astrue 
In vera sophia. 

Quae regnas cum filio,
O clemens, o pia, 
Fac nos tecum vivere, 
O dulcis Maria.

English translation: 

Hail, mistress of the world and Queen of heaven, Mother of God unspoilt, rose without thorn.

May your conception be our medicine and your birth our path of dawn.

May your presentation to the temple be our own offering and the Annunciation and your purification be our cleansing.

May your ascension be our path of salvation. Uphold us with you in true wisdom.

You who reign with your son, o compassionate, o kind, let us live with you, o sweet Mary.
