AVe Regina celorum,
Aue domina angelorum
Salue Radix sancta

Translation

Hail, O Queen of Heaven enthroned.
Hail, by angels mistress owned:
Root of Jesse, Gate of Morn
Whence the world's true light was born:
Glorious Virgin, Joy to thee,
Loveliest whom in heaven they see:
Fairest thou, where all are fair,
Plead with Christ our souls to spare.
