O Porta Caeli, O stella maris,
O Virgo Mater, O Mater et Virgo
o Dei Filia, o Mater Virgo, Virgo Maria,
exaudi voces quas fundunt populi clamores percipe
et preces suscipe affer auxilium clamantes auspice.
Exaudi supplicum preces fidelium, Virgo Maria
O corona Virginitatis Maria
O pretiosa mundi Margarita
O decus Angelorum
O nostrum refugium
O Lampas Caeli et terrae gloria Virgo Maria
exaudi voces quas fundunt populi clamores percipe
et preces suscipe affer auxilium clamantes auspice.
Exaudi supplicum preces fidelium, Virgo Maria
O terror Demonum
o Virgo praeclara
o Mater suavis
o pulchra rosa
o summa Regis filia
Virgo Maria
exaudi voces quas fundunt populi clamores percipe
et preces suscipe affer auxilium clamantes auspice.
Exaudi supplicum preces fidelium, Virgo Maria.

O Door to heaven, o Star of the sea,
o virgin mother, mother and maid,
hear the voices of the people crying out to thee,
and receive the prayers, offering help to those who implore thee.
O unspoiled Mary, give ear to the supplication of thy faithful.
O Mary, crown of virtue,
O Margaret, prize of this world,
O glory of the angels,
O thou our refuge,
O glorious light of heaven and earth, virgin Mary,
hear the voice…
O terror of demons,
O shining virgin,
O sweet mother,
O beautiful rose,
O highest-born daughter of the King,
hear the voices…
