Ave regina caelorum
Mater regis angelorum.

O Maria flos virginum
Velut rosa vel lilium,
Funde preces ad filium
Pro salute fidelium.

Ave corpus domini
Munus et finale,
Corpus iunctum homini
In memoriale
Cum finalis termini
Mundo dixit: “Vale”.


English translation: 

Hail, heaven's queen, mother of the king of angels.

O Mary flower of virgins, like a rose or lily, lay our prayer before your son, for the welfare of the faithful people.

Hail, body of the Lord and final gift, body tied to a man in remembrance of the final end when he said to the world: “Farewell”.
