Pulcherrima rosa de spina floruit
Ex flore germinosa lilium genuit
Servans pudorem ex virgineo more
Peperit factura factura factorem.

Virgo singularis te nulla dignior
Fulgens stella maris luna lucidior
Sic succuristi regina mundo tristi
Eve matris sic quae noxam que solvisti.

Esto nobis grata tis aput filium
Mater advocata post hoc exilium
Nos per iuvamen pater natus ac flamen
Tuum mater virgo solvat omnes.

Amen.

Latin Text: CPDL

Most Beautiful Rose blooming from a thorn
From the budding flower, a lily born
Serving modestly and in a Virginal way
The created one bore The Creator

Unique Virgin, no-one is worthy of you
Gleaming Star of the Sea, Light and the Moon
Serving modestly and in a Virginal way
The created one bore The Creator
Such succour Queen of this sad World
And Mother of Eve who lightens our punishment

Serving modestly and in a Virginal way
The created one bore The Creator
Freely for us, beside your Son, Mother and witness
After this Earthly exile
Serving modestly and in a Virginal way
The created one bore The Creator.

Amen.
