Rein von aller Schuld empfangen,

Uns're Mutter, sei gegrüßt!
Heil'ge Jungfrau, wie im Leben,
So auch steh' uns bei im Sterben,
O Maria, sei gegrüßt.

Virgin Thou, the aspiration of the world,
Conceived free of all fault,
Mother of Jesus, we hail Thee!

Who pleased God before all others,
Oh Mary, we hail Thee!

Up in the heights of Heaven,
Our Mother, we hail Thee!
Holy Virgin, as in life
Stand by us also in death,
Oh Mary, we hail Thee!
