Alma Redemptoris Mater,
Quae pervia coeli porta manes
Et stella maris, succurre cadenti
Surgere qui curat populo:

Tu quae genuisti Natura mirante 
tuum sanctum Genitorem
Virgo prius ac posterius,
Gabrielis ab ore sumens illud Ave
Peccatorum miserere.

Vapahtajan rakastava Äiti
Language: Finnish (Suomi)  after the Latin 
Vapahtajan rakastava Äiti,
portti Taivaan tiellä
ja meren tähti, riennä langenneiden avuksi
sinä, joka pidät huolta kansastasi:	

Sinä, joka Luonnon ihmetellessä
synnytit pyhän Luojasi,
olit neitsyt sitä ennen ja jälkeen,
ja kuulit Gabrielin suusta tervehdyksen "Ave",
armahda meitä syntisiä.
