Virgo plena gracie, Thesaurus largitatis, Oculus clemencie, Pupilla pietatis, Porta patens venie, Scala caritatis, Oleum leticie, Nomen suavitatis; Tu commune canticum Pro celleuma nauticum. Clamant omnia: ‘O subveni Maria! Instant tempora; Nova gravat hora Operarios; Plus abrevia Dies hos Egipcios Propter filios, Virgo, mater pia.’
Virgin, full of grace, Treasure of bounty, Eye of clemency, Pupil of mercy, Open door of pardon, Ladder of love, Oil of gladness, Name of sweetness; You are the familiar Sailing-song for setting the rowers’ pace. All cry: ‘O come to our aid, Mary! The times press on; The last hour weighs Upon the labourers. Shorten these days Of Egyptian captivity, For the sake of the sons, O Virgin, merciful mother.’
