Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum, Virgo serena,
Tu parvi et magni,
leonis et agni,
Salvatoris Christi,
templum extitisti,
sed virgo intacta.
Tu floris et roris,
panis et pastoris,
virginum et regina,
rosa sine spina,
genitrix es facta.
Tu civitas regis justitiae,
Tu mater es misericordiae,
de lacu faecis et miseriae,
Theophilum reformans gratiae.
Te collaudat caelestis curia,
tu mater es regis et filia.
O Maria dulcissima,
per te reis donatur venia.
O Maria piissima,
per te reis donatur venia.
O Maria mitissima,
per te jusits confertur gratia.
Pro nobis semper Christum exora. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with you, serene Virgin.
For lowly and great,
lion and lamb,
our saviour Christ:
you have been his temple,
while still a virgin.
For the flower and rose,
the bread and the shepherd:
you queen of virgins,
a rose without a thorn,
you became their mother.
You are the royal seat of justice,
you are the mother of mercy,
from out of the depths of dregs and misery
hast seen Theophilus to grace.
The heavenly court praises you,
you the king’s mother and daughter;
O sweetest Mary,
through you the accused is forgiven.
O most pious Mary,
through you the accused is forgiven.
O most gentle Mary,
through you favor comes to the just.
For us always entreat Christ. Amen.
