Sub tuum praesidium confugimus,
sancta Dei genitrix:
nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus:
sed a periculis cunctis libera nos, semper virgo benedicta.

We flee into your protection,
O holy mother of God:
despise not the prayers we offer in our need,
but deliver us from all dangers, O ever-blessed Virgin.
