Salve Regina

This is the Marian Antiphon for Compline essentially during Ordinary Time.

Salve, Regina, Mater misericordiæ,
vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.
ad te clamamus exsules filii Evæ,
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.

℣ Ora pro nobis sancta Dei Genitrix.
℟ Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.

Words: Unknown, 11th C.
Simple Tone:
Salve Regina (Simplex)” Gregorian Chant, Mode V, traditional.

Salve Regina (Solemnis)” Gregorian Chant, Mode I, traditional

This text has been translated frequently into English, including Fr. Caswall’s “Mother of Mercy, Hail, O Gentle Queen!” and the popular hymn “Hail, Holy Queen“.
