Ave virgo sanctissima,
Dei mater piissima,
Maris stella clarissima.
Salve semper gloriosa,
Margaritta pretiosa,
Sicut lilium formosa,
Rubicunda velut rosa.

Hail you virgin most holy,
gracious mother of God
bright Star of the Sea.
Hail you ever glorious,
most precious pearl,
fair as the lily,
red as the rose.
