Salve Regina, Mater misericordiae

Language: Latin

Salve Regina, Mater misericordiae,
vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve. 

[Ad te clamamus, exsules filii Evae.]1

[Ad]2 te suspiramus gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle. 

[Eia ergo, advocata nostra,
illos tuos misericordes oculos
ad nos converte.]3 

[Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.]4

[O clemens, o pia]5, o dulcis Virgo Maria.
