Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Dulcissima Maria, amore tuo langueo,
quia suavis et benigna es.
Vultum tuum deprecabuntur omnes divites plebis.
Pulchra es virgo Maria, et macula non est in te.
Audi nos sanctissima, et intercede pro nobis
ad Dominum Iesum Filium tuum Dominum nostrum.

Sweet Mary, I languish for love of you,
for you are goodnatured and kind.
All who are wealthy among the people make entreaties to you.
You are beautiful, Mary, and there is no fault in you.
Hear us, most holy one, and intercede for us
to our Lord Jesus, your son.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank

(Ct 4,7; 5,8; Ps 45,13)
Dulcísima María, por tu amor languidezco
porque eres dulce y benigna.
Todos los poderosos del pueblo
suplicarán ante tu presencia.
Eres hermosa, virgen María, y no hay mancha en ti.
Escúchanos, santísima, e intercede por nosotros ante Jesús,
Hijo tuyo y Señor nuestro.
Translation by Alejandro Borrego Pérez
