Te gestientem gaudiis,
Te sauciam doloribus,
Te iugi amictam gloria,
O Virgo Mater, pangimus.

Ave, redundans gaudio
Dum concipis, dum visitas,
Et edis, offers, invenis,
Mater beata, Filium,

Ave, dolens, et intimo
In corde agonem, verbera,
Spinas, crucemque Filii
Perpessa, princeps martyrum.

Ave, in triumphis Filii,
In ignibus Paracliti,
In regni honore et lumine,
Regina fulgens gloria.

Venite gentes, carpite
Ex his rosas mysteriis,
Et pulchri amoris inclitæ
Matri coronas nectite.

Iesu, tibi sit gloria,
Qui natus es de Virgine,
Cum Patre et almo Spiritu,
In sempiterna sæcula. Amen.
