1  O santissima, o piissima,
Madre nostra, Maria.
Tu, preservata immacolata,
prega, prega per i figli tuoi.

2  Benedetta ed eletta
fra le donne, Maria.
Sei la speranza, o tutta Santa:
prega, prega per i figli tuoi.

3  Il Signore ha compiuto in te
grandi cose, Maria !
Tu sei la Madre del Salvatore:
prega, prega per i figli tuoi.

4  Tu del cielo sei Regina,
o beata Maria.
Noi ti amiamo, noi t'invochiamo:
prega, prega per i figli tuoi.

1  Our holiest, most merciful
mother, Mary,
You, who were preserved without stain,
pray, pray for your children.

2  You who were blessed and chosen
from among all women, Mary,
in you there is hope, most holy one:
pray, pray for your children.

3  The Lord has achieved great things
in you, Mary!
You are the Saviour's mother:
pray, pray for your children.

4  You are queen of Heaven,
blessed Mary.
We love you, we call upon you:
pray, pray for your children.
