Ave, maris stella
Dei mater alma (Ave, maris stella)

Sumat per te precem
Qui pro nobis natus
Tulit esse tuus

Translation
Hail, star of the sea
Nurturing Mother of God
And ever Virgin
Happy gate of Heaven (Hail, star of the sea)

Receiving that “Ave”
From the mouth of Gabriel
Establish us in peace
Transforming the name of “Eva”

Loosen the chains of the guilty
Send forth light to the blind (Send forth light to the blind)
Our evil do thou dispel
Entreat all good things (Entreat all good things)

Show thyself to be a Mother
Through thee may he receive prayer
Who being born for us
Undertook to be thine own

Loosen the chains of the guilty
Send forth light to the blind
Our evil do thou dispel
Entreat all good things

Show thyself to be a Mother (Show thyself to be a Mother)
Through thee may he receive prayer (Through thee may he receive prayer)
Who being born for us
Undertook to be thine own

Hail, star of the sea
Nurturing Mother of God
