Beata es, Maria,
virgo clemens et pia;
candore vincis lilia,
es rosa sine spina,
sanctorum melodia.
Kyrie eleison,
Christe eleison.
O Christe, audi nos.
Sancta Maria,
ora pro nobis ad Dominum.
O Christe, audi nos.

Ave Maria,
virgo clemens et pia,
gratia plena.
Dominus tecum.
Virgo serena,
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus
ventris tui, Jesus.
Sancta Maria,
ora pro nobis ad Dominum.
O Christe, audi nos.

Blessed are you, Mary,
merciful and holy virgin;
your fairness surpasses lilies,
you are a rose without thorn,
the singing of the saints.
Lord have mercy,
Christ have mercy.
O Christ, hear us.
Holy Mary,
pray for us to the Lord.
O Christ, hear us.

Hail Mary,
merciful and holy virgin,
full of grace.
The Lord is with you.
Serene virgin,
you are blessed among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of your womb, Jesus
Holy Mary,
pray for us to the Lord.
O Christ, hear us.
