    Sancta Maris, succurre miseris,
    iuva pusillanimes, fove flebiles,
    ora pro populo, intervene pro clero,
    intercede pro devote foemineo sexu.
    Sentiant omnes tuum iuvamen
    quicunque celebrant tuam sanctam festivitatem.

    Holy Mary, help the unfortunate,
    aid the weak, encourage the feeble,
    pray for the people, intervene for the clergy,
    intercede for the devout female sex.
    May all feel your help
    who celebrate your holy feast.

    Magnificat anima mea dominum,
    et exaltavit spiritus meus in deo salutari meo.
    Quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae, ecce enim
    ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes.
    Quia fecit mihi magna qui potens est,
    et sanctum nomen eius.
    Et misericordia eius a progenie in progenies
    timentibus eum.
    Fecit potentiam in bracchio suo: dispersit
    superbos mente cordis sui.
    Deposuit potentes de sede
    et exaltavit humiles.
    Esurientes implevit bonis,
    et divites dimisit inanes.
    Suscepit Isreal puerum suum,
    recordatus misericordiae suae.
    Sicut locutus est ad patres nostros,
    Abraham et semini eius in secula.

    Gloria patri…

    My soul magnifies the Lord,
    and my spirit has rejoiced in God my savior.
    For he has regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden:
    behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
    For he that is mighty has made me great,
    and holy is his name.
    And his mercy is on them that fear him, from generation
    to generation.
    He has shown strength with his arm: he has scattered
    the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
    He has put down the mighty from their seat
    and exalted the humble.
    The hungry he has filled with good things,
    and the rich he has sent empty away.
    He has helped his servant Israel,
    in remembrance of his mercy.
    As it was promised to our forefathers,
    to Abraham and his seed forever.

    Glory be to the Father…

    O quam pulchra es amica mea,
    Columba mea, formosa mea, o quam pulchra es.
    O quam pulchra oculi tui columbarum,
    capilli tui sicut greges caprarum,
    dentes tui sicut greges tonsarum.
    Quam pulchra es, o pulcherrima mulieres.
    Egredere et veni, veni soror mea, veni immaculate mea.
    Veni, quia amore langueo, et anima mea liquefacta es.

    How beautiful you are, my love,
    my dove, my fair one, O how beautiful you are!
    O how beautiful your doves’ eyes,
    your hair like a flock of goats,
    your teeth like a flock of shorn sheep.
    How beautiful you are, o fairest of women.
    Come forth, come, come my sister, come my perfect one.
    Come, for I am faint with love, and my soul is melted.

    Nisi dominus aedificaverit domum,
    in vanum laboraverunt qui aedificant eam.
    Nisi dominus custodierit civitatem,
    frustra vigilat qui custodit eam.
    Vanum est vobis ante lucem surgere: surgite
    postquam sederitis, qui manducatis panem doloris:
    cum dederit dilectis suis somnum.
    Ecce hereditas domini, filii:
    merces, fructus ventri.
    Sicut sagittae in manu potentis:
    ita filii excussorum.
    Beatus vir qui implevit desiderium suum ex ipsis:
    non confundetur cum loquetur
    inimicis suis in porta.

    Gloria patri…

    Except the Lord build the house,
    they labor in vain that build it.
    Except the Lord keep the city,
    the watchman wakes but in vain.
    It is vain for you to rise before dawn: rise
    after you have sat down, you who eat the bread of sorrow:
    for he has given his beloved sleep.
    Behold, children are an inheritance of the Lord:
    and the fruit of the womb, a reward.
    As arrows in the hand of the mighty,
    so are children of the vigorous.
    Blessed is the man who has fulfilled his longing by them:
    he shall not be confounded when he speaks
    to his enemies at the gate.

    Glory be to the Father…
