Mater digna dei,
Veniae via luxque diei,
Sis tutela rei
Duxque comesque mei.

Nata dei,
Miserere mei.
Lux alma diei,
Digna coli,
Regina poli,
Me linquere noli.

Me tibi, virgo pia
Genitrix, commendo, Maria.
Iesu fili dei,
Tu miserere mei.

English translation: 

Mother worthy of God, way of mercy and light of day, be a protection to the guilty and my leader and my companion.

Born of God, have mercy on me. Sweet light of day, worthy to be venerated, queen of heaven, do not abandon me.

I commend myself to you, pious virgin mother, Mary. Jesus, son of God, have mercy on me.
