A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Wednesday, October 10, 2007
  Ave, Regína caelórum,
Hail, O Queen, on high enthroned,
Hail, O Lady, by Angels owned;
Jesse's rod; yea heaven's portal
Whence hath shone earth's Light immortal:
Hail, O Virgin, most renowned,
Hail, O truly worthy Maiden:
Pray Christ for us so burden-laden.

Latin lyrics Literal English translation

Ave, Regína caelórum,
Ave, Dómina angelórum:
Salve radix, salve porta,
Ex qua mundo lux est orta: Gaude,
Virgo gloriósa,
Super omnes speciósa:

Vale, O valde decóra,
Et pro nobis Christum exóra.

Ave, Regina caelorum,
Ave, Domina Angelorum:
Salve, radix, salve, porta
Ex qua mundo lux est orta:

Gaude, Virgo gloriosa,
Super omnes speciosa,
Vale, o valde decora,
Et pro nobis Christum exora.

V. Dignare me laudare te, Virgo sacrata.
R. Da mihi virtutem contra hostes tuos.

Oremus. Concede, misericors Deus, fragilitati nostrae praesidium: ut, qui sanctae Dei Genitricis memoriam agimus; intercessionis eius auxilio, a nostris iniquitatibus resurgamus. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

Hail, O Queen of Heav'n enthroned!
Hail by Angels mistress owned!
Root of Jesse, gate of morn,
Whence the world's true Light was born.
Glorious Virgin, joy to thee,
Loveliest whom in heaven they see!

Fairest thou where all are fair!
Plead with Christ our sins to spare.|

Hail, O Queen of Heaven.
Hail, O Lady of Angels
Hail! thou root, hail! thou gate
From whom unto the world, a light has arisen:

Rejoice, O glorious Virgin,
Lovely beyond all others,
Farewell, most beautiful maiden,
And pray for us to Christ.

V. Allow me to praise thee, O sacred Virgin.
R. Against thy enemies give me strength.

Grant unto us, O merciful God, a defense against our weakness, that we who remember the holy Mother of God, by the help of her intercession, may rise from our iniquities, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
