O Virgo prudentissima,
quam coelo missus Gabriel
superni regis nunctius
plena testatur gratia.

Te sponsam factor omnium,
te matrem Dei Filius,
te vocat habitaculum
suum beatus Spiritus.

Tu sella maris diceris;
semper nos inter scopulos
inter obscuros turbines
portum salutis indicas.

Per te de tetro carcere
antique patres exeunt;
per te nobis astrifere
panduntur aulae lumina.

Audi virgo puerpera,
tu sola mater integra,
audi praecantes quaesumus
tuos Maria famulos.

Beata mater et innupta virgo,
repelle mentis tenebras,
disrumpe cordis glaciem,
gloriosa regina mundi,
nos sub tuum presidium confugimus,
intercede pro nobis ad Dominum.
Alleluia.

Cantus firmus:
Beata mater et innupta virgo,
gloriosa regina mundi,
intercede pro nobis ad Dominum.
