Available translation(s): ENG FRE
O intemerata Virgo,
quae Redemptorem Israel peperisti,
et post partum
virgo permansisti.
Dei genitrix,
intercede pro nobis
et ne despicias preces nostras
quia ore indigno
nomen sanctum tuum invocavimus
0 gloriosa domina,
pro nobis Christum exora.

O spotless Virgin
Language: English  after the Latin 
O spotless Virgin
Who gave birth to the Redeemer of Israel
And after his birth
Remained a virgin;
Mother of God,
Intercede for us
And do not look down on our prayers
Because we call on your holy name
With our unworthy mouths
O glorious lady,
Pray to Christ for us.
