Ave, spes nostra, Dei Genitrix Virgo intacta
ave, illud Ave per angelum concipiens

ave, Virgo sanctissima
et Mater sola intacta
te glorificat omnis creatura Matrem luminis.

Hail, our hope, untouched Virgin Mother of God
hail, who accepted that Hail from the angel
hail, blessed one, who conceived the splendor of the Father
hail, most saintly Virgin
and only chaste mother
every creature glorifies you, the Mother of light.
