Salve Regina, Mater misericordie.
Salve vita dulcedo et spes nostra.
Regina ad te clamamus,
exules filii Evæ.
Regina ad te suspiramus
gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle.
Eia ergo advocata nostra
illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte,
et Iesum benedictum fructum ventris tui
nobis post hoc exilium ostende,
o Clemens, o pia,
o dulcis Virgo Maria.
Hail, holy Queen
Hail Queen, Mother of mercy.
Hail our life, our sweetness, and our hope.
Queen, to you we cry,
poor banished children of Eve.
Queen, to you we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping
in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
your merciful eyes on us,
And after this our exile show unto us the
blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus,
O clement, O loving,
O sweet Virgin Mary.
