Salve Regina


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.

Eja ergo, Advocata nostra,

Illos tuos misericordes oculos ad  nos converte

Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,

Nobis, post hoc exilium, ostende,

O clemens, O pia, O dulcis, Virgo Maria.
