*Vergin, tutto amor,
o madre di bontade,
o madre pia, madre pia,
ascolta, dolce Maria,
la voce del peccator.
Il pianto suo ti muova,
giungano a te i suoi lamenti,
suo duol, suoi tristi accenti,
senti pietoso quel tuo cor.
O madre di bontade,
Vergin, tutto amor.

Virgin [Mary], full of love,
Oh mother of goodness,
Oh mother holy,
Hear, sweet Mary,
The voice of the sinner.
May his weeping move you,
May his laments be received by you.
Let his sorrow, his sad pleas,
Be heard by your merciful heart.
Oh mother of goodness,
Virgin [Mary], full of love.
