Latin.png Latin text

Virgo rosa venustatis,
quae producta florem
tene decus castitatis
et in partu sanctiore
exulta previle giis.

Salve virgo virginem,
salve vena vere,
O puritatis terminum,
virgo plena gratia
peperisti Dominum
celestem. Amen.

English.png English translation

Virgin, rose of loveliness
with even greater blossom,
hold the honor of your chastity
and rejoice in the privilege
of a holier childbearing.

Hail, virgin of virgins;
hail, true virgin,
ultimate in purity;
virgin full of grace,
you have borne the
heavenly Lord. Amen.
