Hail true virginity
Language: English  after the Latin 
Hail true virginity,
Unblemished chastity,
Whose purification
Was our cleansing.
O mother of God, 
Remember me.
Amen.

Hail her whose birth
Was our holiness,
Like the morning star in the east
Coming before the true sun.
O mother of God, 
Remember me.
Amen.
