Latin.png Latin text

Sancta Maria, virgo virginum.
Sanctae Trinitatis sacrarium.
Angelorum speculum,
scala sanctorum hominum.
Tu peccatorum refugium,
cerne pia meum periculum,
suscipe clementissima meum suspirium
et da mihi tuum placatissimum Filium.

English.png English translation

Holy Mary, virgin of virgins.
Temple of the Holy Trinity.
Mirror of angels,
Stairway of holy people.
You are the refuge of sinners,
observe, holy one, my trial,
receive, most merciful, my sigh
and reveal to me your very peaceful Son.
