Ave Virgo gratiosa
Stella sola clarior
Mater Dei gloriosa
Favo melis dulcior
Rubicunda plusquam rosa
lilio candidior.

Omnis virtus te decorat
Omnis sanctus te honorat
Iesus Christus te exaltat
In coelis sublimior.

Hail graceful Virgin,
Star brighter than the Sun,
Glorious Mother of God,
Sweeter than honeycomb,
Ruddier than the rose,
whiter than the lily.

Every virtue adorns thee
Every saint honours thee
Jesus Christ exalts thee
above the heavens.
