Ave virgo sanctissima
Dei mater piisima
Maris stella clarissima
Salve semper gloriosa
Margarita pretiosa

Nitens olens velut rosa

Hail, Holy Virgin,
most blessed Mother of God,
bright star of the sea.
Hail, ever glorious,
precious pearl,
lovely as the lily,
beautiful and perfumed as the rose.

Wees gegroet, allerheiligste maagd
meest goedertieren moeder van god
helderste sterre der zee
gegroet, altijd roemrijke vrouwe
kostbare parel
als een lelie zo schoon
en teder en geurig als rozen

Sei gegrüßet, heiligste Jungfrau,
hochgesegnete Mutter Gottes,
hellster Meeresstern.
Sei gegrüßet, allzeit Ruhmreiche,
kostbare Perle,
schön wie die Lilie,
prächtig und wohlriechend wie die Rose.
