Salve Rex noster,
salve pater misericordiae.
Vita dulcedo et spes nostra, salve.

Ad te clamamus exules filiae Evae,
ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle.

Eia ergo advocata noster
illos tuos misericordes oculos
ad nos converte

et Jesum, unigenitum filium tuum
nobis post hoc exilium ostende.
O clemens, o pie, o dulcis Rex noster, salve.
