Alma Redemptoris Mater, 
quæ pervia cæli
Porta manes, et stella maris, 
 succurre cadenti,

Surgere qui curat, populo: 
tu quæ genuisti,

Natura mirante, tuum sanctum 
Virgo prius ac posterius, Gabrielis ab ore
Sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere.

Mother of Christ ! Hear thou thy people's cry,
Star of the deep, and portal of the sky !
Mother of Him Who thee from nothing made,
Sinking we strive and call to thee for aid;
Oh, by that joy which Gabriel brought to thee,
Thou Virgin first and last, let us thy mercy see.

"Alma Redemptoris Mater"
