Beata viscera Mariae virginis,
quae fructu gravida aeterni germinis
in vitae poculo propinat [pro nobis
et nostro vitia potum] dulcedinis.
(per Marrocco & Sandon's Medieval Music, 1977)

Blessed be the womb of the Virgin Mary, 
who, heavy with the fruit of the Eternal's seed, 
in the cup of life pledges for us, 
and for our sins, a draught of sweetness.

Beata viscera Mariae virginis,

Blessed is the womb of the Virgin Mary,
who, heavy with the fruit of the eternal seed,
in the vessel of life, delivers to the world,
for the good of man, the gift of sweetness.
