Star of Heaven,
who nourished the Lord
and rooted up the plague of death
which our first parents planted;
may that star now deign
to hold in check the constellations
whose strife grants the people
the ulcers of a terrible death.

O glorious star of the sea,
save us from the plague.
Save us, Jesus! For us,
the Virgin Mother entreats Thee.
