Full text: 

Alma redemptoris mater, quae pervia caeli
Porta manes et stella maris, succurre cadenti
Surgere qui curat populo. Tu, quae genuisti, 
Natura mirante, tuum sanctum genitorem;
Virgo prius ac posterius, Gabrielis ab ore 
Sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere.

English translation: 

Kind mother of the redeemer, you who remain as an open gate of heaven, and star of the sea;
Succor the people, falling though trying to rise. You who begot in miraculous manner your holy begetter;
Virgin before and after, accepting this Ave from Gabriel's mouth, have mercy of the sinners.
