Most holy Virgin,
who wast pleasing to the Lord
and became His Mother,
immaculate in body and spirit,
in faith and in love,
look kindly on the wretched
who implore thy powerful patronage.
The wicked serpent,
against whom was hurled the first curse,
continues fiercely to attack
and ensnare the unhappy children of Eve.
Do thou, then, O Blessed Mother,
our queen and advocate,
who from the first instant of thy conception
didst crush the head of the enemy,
receive the prayers which,
united with thee in our single heart,
we implore thee to present at the throne of God,
that we may never fall into the snares
which are laid out for us,
and may all arrive at the port of salvation;
and, in so many dangers,
may the Church and Christian society
sing once again the hymn of deliverance
and of victory and of peace.
In Thy conception,
O Virgin Mary,
thou wast immaculate;
pray for us to the Father, Whose Son,
Jesus Christ conceived of the Holy Ghost,
thou didst bring forth.
