Ave, maris stella

Language: Latin

Ave, maris stella,
Dei mater alma,
Atque semper virgo,
Felix coeli porta.

Sumens illud Ave
Gabrielis ore,
funda nos in pace,
mutans Hevae nomen.

Solve vincula 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 tuum,
Ut, videntes Iesum,
Semper collaetemur. 

Sit laus Deo Patri,
Summo Christo decus,
Spiritui sancto;
Tribus honor unus.
