Full text: 

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

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

Salve decus virginum,
Mediatrix hominum,
Salutis puerpera.

Flos campi convallium, 
Singulare lilium,
Christus ex te prodiit.

English translation: 

Hail, holy mother of the Word, flower from a thorn 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.

Hail, splendor of virgins, mediator of men, bearer of salvation.

Flower of the field of the valleys, extraordinary lily, Christ came forth from you.
