Benedicta es, celorum Regina
et mundi totius domina
et egris medicína.
Tu praeclara maris stella vocaris,
que solem iustitiae paris, a quo illuminaris
te Deus pPater et Dei mater fieres et ipse frater
cuius eras filia
sanctificavit sanctam servavit
et mittens sic salutavit
Ave plena gratia.
Per illud ave prolatum
et tuum responsum gratum est ex te verbum incarnatum
quo salvantur omnia
nunc mater exora natum
ut nostrum tollat reatum
et regnum det nobis paratum
In celesti patria.
Amen.
