Lyrics and Translation:

Inviolata, integra, et casta es Maria,
quae es effecta fulgida caeli porta.

O Mater alma Christi carissima,
suscipe pia laudum praeconia.

Te nunc flagitant devota corda et ora,
nostra ut pura pectora sint et corpora.

Tua per precata dulcisona,
nobis concedas veniam per saecula.

O benigna! O Regina! O Maria,
quae sola inviolata permansisti.
Inviolate, spotless and pure art thou,
O Mary Who wast made the radiant gate of Heaven.

Holy mother of Christ most dear,
receive our devout hymn and praise.

Our hearts and tongues now ask of thee
that our hearts and bodies may be pure.

By thy sweet-sounding prayers
obtain for us forgiveness forever.

O benign! O Queen! O Mary,
who alone among women art inviolate.
