*Ave, maris stella, Dei Mater alma, Atque semper Virgo, Felix caeli porta.

Sumens illud Ave Gabrielis ore, Funda nos in pace, Mutans Hevae nomen.

Solve vincla reis, Profer lumen caecis, Mala nostra pelle, Bona cuncta posce

Monstra te esse matrem Sumat per te preces, Qui pro nobis natus Tulit esse tuus.

Virgo singularis, Inter omnes mitis, Nos culpis solutos, Mites fac et castos.

Vitam praesta puram, Iter para tutum, Ut videntes Jesum, Semper collaetemur.

Sit laus Deo Patri, Summo Christo decus Spiritui Sancto, Tribus honor unus. Amen.

Hail, star of the sea, loving Mother of God, and also always a virgin, happy gate of heaven.

Receiving that “Ave” from Gabriel’s mouth confirm us in peace, changing Eve’s name.

Break the chains of sinners, bring light to the blind, Drive away our evils, ask for all good

Show yourself to be a mother, may He accept prayers through you, He who, born for us, chose to be yours.

O unique virgin, meek above all, make us, absolved from sin, gentle and chaste.

Keep life pure, make the journey safe, so that, seeing Jesus, we may always rejoice together.

Let there be praise to God the Father, glory to Christ in the highest, to the Holy Spirit, One honor to all three. Amen.
