Salve regina, vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve.

Ad te clamamus exsules filii Evae.
Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes in hac lacrimarum valle.
Eia ergo, advocata nostra, illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte,
et Jesum benedictum fructum ventris tui
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.

Virgo mater ecclesiae,
Aeterna porta gloriae,
Esto nofugium
Apud Patrem et Filium.

O clemens.

Virgo clemens, virgo pia,
Virgo dulcis, O Maria,
Exaudi preces omnium
Ad te pie clamantium.

O pia.

Funde preces tuo nato
Crucifixo, vulnerato,
Et pro nobis flagellato,
Spinis puncto, felle potato.

[O] dulcis.

Gloriosa Dei mater,
Cujus natus extat pater,
Ora pro nobis omnibus
Qui tui memoriam agimus.

O felix.

Dele culpas miserorum,
Terge sordes peccatorum,
Dona nobis beatorum
Vitam tuis precibus.

O benigna, O clemens,
O pia, O dulcis et gloriosa Virgo Maria, salve.
