3. Inviolata [sung text not yet checked]

Inviolata, integra, et casta es Maria,
quae es effecta fulgida caeli porta.
O Mater alma Christi carissima,
suscipe pia laudum praeconia.

Nostra ut pura pectora sint et corpora,
quae nunc flagitant devota corda et ora.
Tua per precata dulcisona,
nobis concedas veniam per saecula.

O benigna, o regina, o Maria,
quae sola inviolata permansisti.
