Ave Regína celórum,
Ave Dómina Angelórum.
Sálve rádix sáncta,
Ex qua múndo lux est órta.
Ave gloriósa,
Súper ómnes speciósa,
Vále, válde decóra.
Et pro nóbis sémper Chrístum exóra.

Hail, Queen of the heavens,
Hail, Ruler of Angels.
Health to you, holy source,
Whence dawn has risen upon the world.
Hail, O glorious,
Beautiful beyond all;
Farewell, most lovely.
And ever intercede for us with Christ.
