Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum, Virgo serena.
Ave cujus conceptio,
Solemni plena gaudio,
Coelestia, terrestria
Nova replet laetitia.
Ave cujus nativitas
Nostra fuit solemnitas,
Ut Lucifer, lux oriens,
Verum solem praeveniens.
Ave pia humilitas,
Sine viro foecunditas,
Cujus annunciatio
Nostra fuit salvatio.
Ave vera virginitas,
Immaculata castitas,
Cujus purificatio
Nostra fuit purgatio.
Ave praeclara omnibus
Angelicis virtutibus,
Cujus fuit assumptio
Nostra glorificatio.
O Mater Dei,
Memento mei.
