Salve, sancta parens, enixa puerperal Regem;
qui caelum, terramque regit, regit in saecula saeculorum.
Eructavit cor meum verbum bonum:
dico ego opera mea Regi.

Hail, Holy Mother, thou who didst bring forth the King who rules heaven and earth for ever and ever.
My heart hath uttered a good word: I speak my works to the King.
