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.
