Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

O Maria, vernans rosa,
Porta coeli speciosa,
Clarior sideribus,
Me guberna, me supporta,
Me defende, me conforta
Ne vincar ab hostibus.

Tu lux pulchra, tu medela,
Tu pax vera, tu tutela,
Inimici frange tela
Succurre cadentibus.

O Mary, rose of spring,
fair gate to Heaven,
brighter than the stars!
Support and direct me,
sustain and protect me,
lest the foe vanquish me.

You beautiful light, you healer,
you bringer of true peace, you protector.
Defeat my enemies.
Grant me your help.
