Paranymphus salutat
Virginem intemeratam:
Dominus tecum,
inter mulieres benedicta,
ave, inquit gratia plena humilis Maria.
Ecce Virgo decora,
virginitate servata,
tu paries Filium, intacta Maria.

The friend of the bridegroom
greets the undefiled Virgin:
The Lord is with you,
blessed are you amongst women,
Hail, he says, full of grace, humble Mary.
Behold the graceful Virgin,
the virgin maidservant,
You will bring forth a son, chaste Mary.
