O Genitrix gloriosa,
mater Dei speciosa,
suscipe verbum divinum
quod tibi fuit transmissum
a Domino per Angelum.

Beata Virgo nitida,
Paries quidem Filium
efficieris gravida,
non habens detrimentum virginitatis,
et eris benedicta
Virgo semper intacta.

Ave Virgo gloriosa,
Maria mater gratia
ave gemma speciosa,
mater misericordia.

O aria florens rosa,
tu nos ab hoste protege,
esto nobis gratiosa
et hora mortis suscipe.

O te creavit provide
lactasti sacro ubere.
Quod Eva tristis abstulit,
Tu reddis almo germine,
intrent ut astra flebiles,
caeli fenestra facta es.

Maria mater gratiae,
mater misericordiae.
