A ve Ma ri a, gra ti a ple na,
Do mi nus, Do mi nus te cum.
Be ne dic ta tu in mu li e ri bus,
et be ne di ctus fru ctus ven tris tu-i,
San cta Ma ri a, ma ter De i,
o ra pro no bis pec ca to ri bus
nunc et in ho ra mor tis nos trae.
O ra pro no bis pec ca to ri bus.
O ra pro no bis, o ra pro no bis
nunc et in ho ra mor tis nos trae.
