Salve celeberrima virgo dei genitrix,
salve lux superum decus admirabile secli,
tu spes humani generis sanctitatis speculum
quam speciosa nimis,
quam pulchra es, et quam decora.

Haec est illa dulcissima
que sanctarum sanctissima virginis nomen habet
nanque virgo genuit redemptorem omnium
quod per Evam latuit nobile principium.
