Virgo immaculata quae effulges in caelis
dum verba spirant dulcissima tua
nos faciunt beatos
porta caeli stellantis salutis nobis
tuus succurrat amor.

Unspotted Virgin, who shines forth in the heavens
while your most sweet words breathe
they will make us blessed.
Your love will succour the gate of heaven,
starry with our salvation.
