Sancta Maria, mater Dei,
ego omnia tibi debeo,
sed ab hac hora singulariter
me tuis servitiis devoveo.
Te patronam,
te sospitatricem eligo.
Tuus honor et cultus
aeternum mihi cordi fuerit,
quem ego nunquam deseram
neque ab aliis mihi subditis
verbo factoque violari patiar.
Sancta Maria, tu pia
me pedibus tuis advolutum recipe,
in vita protege,
in mortis discrimine defende.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
I owe all to you,
And from this hour
I devote myself only to your service.
You as a protector,
you as a preserver I choose.
Your worship and honour
will be eternally in my heart,
which I shall never desert
nor submit, from others liable to me,
to it being violated by deed and by word.
Holy Mary, pious,
receive me, begging at your feet,
in life protect me,
defend me from the risk of death.
