Salve Regina
(Hail, Holy Queen)

Salve Regina,
Mater Misericordiae
Vita dulcedo
et spes nostra salve
Ad te clamamus,
exsules filii Hevae
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 exsilium ostende
O clemens, O pia, O dulcis, Virgo Maria

– Translation – 
Hail, O Queen,
Mother of mercy:
our life, our sweetness,
and our hope, hail.
To thee do we cry,
exiles; sons of Eve.
To thee do we sigh,
moaning and weeping
in this valley of tears.
Ah then, our Advocate,
those merciful eyes of thine
turn towards us.
And Jesus, the blessed fruit of thy womb,
after this exile show unto us.
O clement: O holy: O sweet Virgin Mary.
