Ave, virga decoris incliti,
Officina almi Paracliti,
Flore vernans incomparabili,
Ave, mater regis magnifici,
Cuius sumus cruore diluti
Ac de iugo Sathane eruti,
Tu, aurora regis perpetui,
Fac ut muro inexpugnabili
Nos circumdet virtus altissimi.
Hail, stem of marvellous splendour,
Store-house of the gentle Holy Spirit,
Budding with incomparable flower,
Hail, mother of the mighty king,
In whose blood we are cleansed
And rescued from the yoke of Satan,
Thou, the dawning of the everlasting king,
Grant that the virtue of the Most Highest
Will protect us by an unassailable wall.
