Te matrem Dei laudamus,
te Mariam virginem confitemur.
Te eterni Patris sponsam omnis terra veneratur.
Tibi omnes angeli et archangeli,
tibi omnes principatus humiliati serviunt.
Tibi omnes potestates et superne virtutes obediunt.
Tibi omnes celorum dominationes obediunt.
Tibi omnes throni cherubin et seraphim exsultantes assistunt.
Tibi cuncta angelica creatura delectabili voce proclamat sancta.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei et virgo,
pleni sunt celi et terra majestatis glorie fructus ventris tui.
Te gloriosus apostolorum chorus creaturis matrem collaudat.
Te laudabilis numerus prophetarum virginem Deum parituram predixerat.
Te Martyrum cetus beatorum Christi genitricem glorificat.
Te gloriosus exercitus confessorum totius Trinitatis templum appellat.
Te amabilis chorea Virginum sanctarum tue virginitatis et humilitatis exemplum predicat.
Te tota celestis curia: celorum reginam honorat.
Miserere nostri pia, miserere nostri.
