Mente tota tibi supplicamus

Language: Latin

Mente tota tibi supplicamus,
ut sicut Filio tuo
Domino nostro Jesu Christo
aliquando displicuimus,
modo vice versa immutatis moribus
per te usque in finem ei complaceamus.
Preces nostras, Virgo mirabilis,
ideo ne despicias quia ore indigno
nomen sanctum tuum
invocare praesumimus:

Sancta Maria,
ora pro nobis;
sancta Dei genitrix,
ora pro nobis;
sancta Virgo virginum,
intercede pro nobis.

De tout notre esprit nous te supplions

Language: French (Français) after the Latin

De tout notre esprit nous te supplions,
Pour que, comme ton fils,
Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ,
Une fois nous lui avons déplu,
À l'inverse en changeant de mœurs
Par toi jusqu'à la fin nous lui plaisions.
Nos prières, vierge merveilleuse,
Ne les méprise pas parque d'une bouche indigne
Ton saint nom
Nous osons l'invoquer :

Sainte Marie,
Prie pour nous ;
Sainte mère de Dieu,
Prie pour nous ;
Sainte vierge parmi les vierges,
Intercède en notre faveur.
