Der englische Gruß
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Gegrüßet, Maria, du Mutter der Gnaden!
So sangen die Engel der Jungfrau Maria
In ihrem Gebete, darinnen sie rang.

Maria, du sollst einen Sohn empfangen,
Darnach tun Himmel und Erde verlangen,
Daß du die Mutter des Herren sollst sein.

O Engel, wie mag ich das erleben,
Ich hab mich noch keinem Manne ergeben
In dieser weiten und breiten Welt.

Wie Tau kommt über die Blumenmatten,
So soll dich der heilige Geist überschatten;
So soll der Heiland geboren sein.

Maria die höret solches gerne,
Sie sprach: ich bin eine Magd des Herren,
Nach deinem Worte geschehe mir!

Die Engel sanken auf ihre Knie,
Sie sangen alle: Maria, Maria,
Sie sangen Maria den Lobgesang.

Il saluto dell'angelo
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
 "Ave Maria, madre di grazia!"
 Così cantavano gli angeli alla Vergine Maria
 in preghiera, interiormente affannata.

 "Maria, concepirai un figlio!
 Cielo e terra comandano
 che tu sia la madre del Signore".

 "O angeli, come ciò può avvenire?
 Non ho ancora incontrato uomo
 in questo largo e vasto mondo".

 Come la colomba scende sui fragili fiori,
 così scenderà su di te lo Spirito Santo,
 e da te nascerà il Salvatore.

 Maria, ascoltando lieta,
 disse: "Sono l'ancella del Signore,
 sia fatto di me secondo la tua parola".

 Gli angeli allora s'inginocchiarono,
 tutti cantavano l'inno
 di lode a Maria!
