  Concórdi lætítia
Latin lyrics Literal English translation

Concórdi lætítia,
Propúlsa mæstítia,
Maríæ præcónia
Récolat Ecclésia:
Virgo María.

Quam concéntu párili
Chori láudant cóelici,
Et nos cum cæléstibus,
Novum melos pángimus;
Virgo María.

O Regína Vírginum,
Votis fave súpplicum,
Et post mortis stádium,
Vitae cónfer práemium:
Virgo María.

Glóriosa Trínitas,

Indivísa Unitas,
Ob Maríæ meríta,
Nos salva per saecula:
Virgo María.

Sounds of joy have put to flight
All the sadness of the night:
Now a maid beyond compare
Hears her praises fill the air:
Virgo María.

Who is she whom angels sing,
Making all creation ring?
She it is who wins our priase,
As on earth our voice we raise:
Virgo María.

Queen of virgins, Maiden mild,
Hear me, take me for your child.
Ever my protector be;
Bring eternal life to me:
Virgo María.

Mighty Godhead, Three in One,
While eternal ages run,
Look to Mary, full of grace,
And forgive the human race:
Virgo María.

(second verse)
Quæ felíci gaúdio,
Resurgénte Dómino,
Floruit ut lílium:
Vivum cernens Fílium:
Virgo María.
