Text

AVe Regina caelorum
Avue Domina Angelorum:
Salue radix sancta,
ex qua mundo
lux est orta.
 
GAude gloriosa,
super omnes speciosa,
vale valde decora,
et pro nobis semper Christum exora.
 

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.
