Ave mater matris Dei
Per quam salvi fiunt rei
Ave prole fecundata
Anna Deo dedicata
Pro fideli plebe tota
Apud Christum sis devota.

Hail, mother of the Mother of God,
Through whom sinners are made safe;
Hail, fruitful with child,
O Ann, dedicated to God,
For all the faithful people
Intercede before Christ.
