Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Virgo divino nimium favore plena,
mortalem supra diva sexum,
salva sis. Tecum Dominus.
perenne accipe votum.

Sancta pro nobis genitum precator.
Quippe tu sola poteris benignum reddere
et sontes facere expiatos
si ubera monstres.

English.png English translation

Virgin, most full of divine favour,
holy above the mortal sex,
May you be well. The Lord is with you.
Receive an eternal prayer.

Holy one, pray to the (one you have) begotten for us.
Indeed, you only can make him kindly
and make the guilty forgiven,
if you show your breasts.
