Ave Maria, gratia plena:
Dominus tecum,
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus
fructus ventris tui Jesus.
Sancta Maria, Regina caeli,
dulcis et pia: O Mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
ut cum electis te videamus.

Hail Mary, full of grace:
the Lord is with you,
blessed are you among women,
and blessed is
the fruit of your womb Jesus.
Sacred Mary, Queen of heaven,
sweet and holy: O Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
that with the elect we may see you.
