Latin.png Latin text

Mariam Matrem Virginem attolite,
Jesum Christum extolite Concorditer.

Maria, saeculi asilum, defendenos.
Jesu, tutum refugium, exaudi nos.
Jam estis vos totaliter diffugium,
totum mundi confugium realiter.

Jesu, suprema bonitas verissima.
Maria, dulcis pietas gratissima.
Amplissima conformiter sit caritas
ad nos quos pellit vanitas enormiter.

Maria, facta saeculis salvatio.
Jesu, damnati hominis redemptio.
Pugnare quem viriliter per famulis
percussis duris iaculis atrociter.

Refrain: Extol Mary, the Virgin Mother,
extol Jesus Christ with one accord.

Mary, haven for the whole world, protect us.
Jesus, saviour of us all, hear us.
Indeed you are our sanctuary,
truly a refuge for the whole world.

Jesus, supreme and most true kindness,
Mary, sweet and most gracious fount of mercy,
In the same way, show your boundless pity for us
who are overcome by the vanity of this world.

Mary became the salvation of all,
Jesus redeemed those who had been damned.
They fought ardently for their followers
who suffered heavy blows.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
