Salve Regina
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the Latin 
Wees gegroet, Koningin, Moeder van barmhartigheid,
Ons leven, onze zoetheid en onze hoop, wees gegroet.
 
Tot u roepen wij, verbannen kinderen van Eva.
 
Tot u smeken wij, zuchtend en wenend, in dit dal van tranen.
 
Welnu dan, onze voorspreekster,
Wend uw medelijdende ogen naar ons.
 
En Jesus, de gezegende vrucht van uw schoot,
Toon hem ons na deze ballingschap.
 
O zachtmoedige, o liefdevolle, o zoete Maagd Maria!
