Beata Dei genitrix Maria,
Virgo perpetua, templum Domini,
sacrarium spiritus sancti,
sola sine exemplo
placuisti Domino Jesu Christo:
ora pro populo,
interveni pro clero,
intercede pro devoto femineo sexu.
Alleluia, alleluia.

O blessed Mary mother of God,
perpetual virgin, temple of our Lord,
the sacred place of the holy Ghost:
thou alone without example,
didst please our Lord Jesus Christ:
pray for the people,
be a mean for the clergy,
make intercession for the devout feminine sex.
