Ave domina mea sancta Maria mater Dei,
regina caeli, porta paradisi, singularis et pura,
tu es virgo, tu concepisti Iesum sine peccato,
tu peperisti creatorem et salvatorem mundi
in quo non dubito. Libera me ab omni malo
et ora pro peccatis meis.

Hail, noble lady, saintly Mary, mother of God,
queen of heaven, gateway to paradise, unique and pure:
as a virgin, you conceived Jesus without committing any fault,
you gave birth to the creator and saviour of the world
in whom I firmly believe.
Keep me free of any evil and pray for my sins. Amen.
