Salve Regina, mater misericordiae: vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve. Ad te clamamus, exsules filii Evae. Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes in hac lacrimarum valle. Eia ergo, advocata nostra, illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte. Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui, nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.
Virgo mater ecclesiae, Aeterna porta gloriae Esto nobis refugium, Apud patrem et filium.
Virgo clemens, Virgo pia, Virgo dulcis, O Maria, Exaudi preces omnium Ad te pie clamantium.
Funde preces tuo nato, Crucifixo, vulnerato, Et pro nobis flagellato, Spinis puncto, felle potato.
O dulcis Maria, salve.
Antiphon to the Virgin Mary from Trinity until Advent, with tropes
Hail O Queen, mother of mercy: our life, our sweetness and our hope, hail. To you we cry, exiled children of Eve. To you we sigh, as we mourn and weep in this valley of tears. Ah then, our advocate, turn those merciful eyes of yours upon us. And Jesus, the blessed fruit of your womb, show to us after our exile here.
Virgin mother of the church, everlasting gate of glory, be our refuge before the Father and the Son.
Gentle virgin, loving virgin, O sweet virgin Mary, hear the prayers of all who humbly cry to you.
Pour out prayers to your Son, the crucified, the wounded, scourged for our sake, pierced with thorns, given gall to drink.
