Text:

Salve, Regina, Mater misericordiæ,
vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.
Ad te clamamus exsules filii Hevæ,
ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle.

Eia, ergo, advocata nostra, illos tuos
misericordes oculos ad nos converte;
et Iesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.
O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo Maria.

Ora pro nobis sancta Dei Genitrix.
Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.
– Hermann of Reichenau

Translation: 
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, 
our life, our sweetness, and our hope, hail. 
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; 
to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping 
in this valley of tears.

Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine 
eyes of mercy toward us; 
and Jesus, blessed fruit of thy womb,
may be shown unto us after this our exile.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

Pray for us O holy Mother of God,
that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
