Hildegard von Bingen: Ave, Maria
______________________________

Ave Maria,
o auctrix vite,
reedificando salutem,
que mortem conturbasti
et serpentem contrivisti,
ad quem se eva erexit
erecta cervice cum sufflatu superbie.

Hunc conculcasti
dum de celo Filium Dei genuisti
quem inspiravit Spiritus Dei.

O dulcissima atque amantissima Mater,
Salve,
que natum tuum de celo
missum mundo edidisti

Quem inspiravit Spiritus Dei.

Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui sancto.
Quem inspiravit Spiritus Dei.

Behold, Mary
Behold, Mary,
you who increase life,
who rebuilds the path,
You who confused death
and wore down the serpent,
To you Eve raised herself up,
her neck rigid with inflated arrogance.

You strode upon this arrogance
while bearing God's Son of Heaven,
through whom the spirit of God breaths.

O gentle and loving Mother,
I behold you.
For Heaven released into the world
that which you brought forth.
This one,
through whom the spirit of God breaths.

Glory to the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
And to this one, through whom the spirit of God breaths.
