Alma Redemptoris Mater, quae pervia caeli porta manes, et stella maris, succure cadenti, surgere qui curat, populo: tu quae genuisti, natura mirante, tuum sanctum Genitorem, Virgo prius ac posterius, Gabrielis ab ore sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere.
O loving Mother of our Savior, mankind’s ready entrance into heaven, and star of the sea: O hasten to aid us, who oft falling strive to rise again. You gave birth, dear Mother, while nature stood in awe, to your own allholy Maker. Ever virgin after and before you received from Gabriel that first solemn Ave: have compassion on us sinners.
