Ave maris stella

Dei Mater alma


atque semper virgo


felix caeli porta. 


 


Sumens illud ave


Gabrielis ore


funda nos in pace


mutans eve nomen.


 


Solve vincla reis

profer luman cecis

mala nostra pella,

bona cuncta posce.


 


Monstra te esse matrem


sumat per te preces,


qui pro nobis natus


tulit esse tuus.


 


Virgo singularis,

inter omnes mitis,

nos culpis solutos,

mites fac et castos.


 


Vitam presta puram


iter para tutum


ut videntes lesum


semper colletemur.


 


[NEV]

Translation


Hail, star of the sea,


loving Mother of God,


and also always a virgin,


Happy gate of heaven.


 


Receiving that Ave


from Gabriel´s mouth


confirm us in peace,


Reversing Eva´s name.


 


Break the chains of sinners,


Bring light to the blind,


Drive away our evils,


Ask for all good.


 


Show yourself to be a mother,


May he accept prayers through you,


he who, born for us,


Chose to be yours.


 


O unique virgin,


Meek above all,


Make us, absolved from sin,


Gentle and chaste.


 


Keep life pure,


Make the journey safe,


So that, seeing Jesus,


We may always rejoice together.


 


Let there be praise to God the


Father,


Glory to Christ in the highest,


To the Holy Spirit,


One honor to all three.

[NEV]
