Ave, lumen gratiae,
Fons misericordie
Virgo fecundata,
Radix pudicitie,
Spes eterne glorie,
Regina beata.

Ave venerabilis,
Mater admirabilis
Per quam lux est orta;
Flos incomparabilis,
Splendor ineffabilis,
Felix celi porta.

Ave, novum gaudium,
Salutis esordium,
Lumen veritatis;
Celi luminarium,
Languoris remedium,
Forma sanctitatis.

Ave, lucis speculum,
Christi tabernaculum,
Virgo benedicta;
Que salvasti populum
Pariendo parvulum,
Per quem mors est victa.
