XII. Ave Maris stella

Ave maris stella, Dei mater alma, Atque semper virgo, Felix coeli porta.

Hail, star of the sea, mild mother of God, eternal Virgin, blessed gate of Heaven.

Sumens illud Ave Gabrielis ore, Funda nos in pace Mutans Evae nomen.

You heard that “Ave” from the mouth of Gabriel, preserve us in peace, changing the name of “Eva.”

Solve vincla reis, Profer lumen caecis, Mala nostra pelle, Bona cunctis posce.

Strike off the chains of the guilty, bring lights to the blind, drive out our evil, give us all that is good.

Monstra te esse matrem: Sumat per te preces, Qui pro nobis natus, Tulit esse tuus.

Show yourself our Mother through you may He receive our prayers, He who, born for us, consented to be yours.

Virgo singularis, Inter omnes mitis, Nos culpis solutos, Mites fac et castos.

Virgin past compare, meekest of all women, make us, purged of our sins, meek and chaste.

Vitam praesta puram, Iter para tutum, Ut videntes Iesum Semper collaetemur.

Grant us a pure life, prepare a safe journey for us that, seeing Jesus, we may rejoice eternally.

Sit laus Deo Patri, Summo Christo decus, Spiritui Sancto, Tribus honor unus. Amen.

Praise be to God the Father, and glory to Christ on high, and to the Holy Spirit, three in one. Amen.
