Rogámus te, Vírgo María,
Rogámus te, digníssima
etérni Régis spónsa
Rogámus te, múndi Regína
quae sóla meruísti
ésse Jánua Chrísti,
Ut próprium pro nóbis
intercédas ad fílium.

We entreat you, Virgin Mary,
We entreat you, most worthy
bride of the eternal King,
We entreat you, Queen of the world,
who alone were worthy
to be the doorway of Christ,
That you intercede for us
with your own son.
