  Salva nos
Latin lyrics Literal English translation

Salva nos, stella maris
Et regina celorum
Salva nos, stella maris
Et regina celorum

Que pura deum paris
Salva nos, stella maris
Et per rubum signaris
Nesciens viri thorum
Salva nos, stella maris
Et regina celorum

O virgo specialis
Salva nos, stella maris
Sis nobis salutaris
Imperatrix celorum
Salva nos, stella maris
Et regina celorum

Tu mater expers paris
Salva nos, stella maris
Manna celeste paris
Et panem angelorum
Salva nos, stella maris
Et regina celorum

O parens expers maris
Salva nos, stella maris
Partu non violaris
Paris sanctum sanctorum
Salva nos, stella maris
Et regina celorum

Celeste manna paris
Salva nos, stella maris
Lux cecis, dux ignaris
Solamen angelorum
Salva nos, stella maris
Et regina celorum

Salva nos, stella maris
Et regina celorum

Save us, star of the sea
And queen of heaven
Save us, star of the sea
And queen of heaven

Who while the pure didst bear god
Save us, star of the sea
And art signalled in the burning bush
Not knowing man as a consort
Save us, star of the sea
And queen of heaven

O virgin most special
Save us, star of the sea
Be thou our salvation
O ruler of heaven
Save us, star of the sea
And queen of heaven

Thou, mother lacking an equal didst bear
Save us, star of the sea
The manna of heaven
And the bread of angels
Save us, star of the sea
And queen of heaven

O parent lacking a male
Save us, star of the sea
And not defiled by the birth
Thou didst bear the holy of holies
Save us, star of the sea
And queen of heaven

Thou didst bear the manna of heaven
Save us, star of the sea
O light to the blind, leader to the ignorant
Solace of the angels
Save us, star of the sea
And queen of heaven

Save us, star of the sea
And queen of heaven
