Salve regina, mater misericordiae;
vita dulcedo et spes nostra, salve.
Ad te clamamus exsules filii Evae.
Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes in hac lacrimarum valle.
Eya ergo, advocata nostra,
illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte;
et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.
Virgo mater ecclesiae, aeterna porta gloriae,
esto nobis refugium apud Patrem et Filium.
O clemens. Virgo clemens, virgo pia, Virgo dulcis O Maria,
exaudi preces omnium ad te pie clamantium.
O pia, funde preces tuo nato crucifixo, vulnerato,
et pro nobis flagellato, Spinis puncto, felle potato.
O dulcis Maria, salve.

Hail queen, mother of mercy;
hail to our sweet life and our hope.
To you we cry out, the exiled children of Eve.
To you we sigh and weep in this vale of tears.
Yea, then, our advocate,
turn those merciful eyes of thine upon us;
and Jesus, the blessed fruit of your womb, show Him to us
after this exile.
Virgin mother of the church, eternal gate of glory,
be our refuge with the Father and the Son.
O merciful one. Merciful virgin, pious virgin, sweet virgin O Mary,
hear the prayers of all who cry to you in piety.
O pious one, pour out your prayers to your crucified, wounded child,
scourged for our sake, pierced with thorns, given gall to drink.
O sweet Mary, hail!
