A-ve Ma-ri-a

A-ve Ma-ri-a
gra-tia ple-na

Do-mi-nus te-cum

Be-ne-dic-ta tu in mu-li-e-ri-bus
et be-ne-dic-tus fruc-tus ven-tris tu-i
fruc-tus ven-tris tu-i,
ven-tris tui, Je-su Je-su Je su.

Sanc-ta Ma-ri-a, Ma-ter De-i,
o-ra o-ra o-ra pro no-bis
o-ra pro no-bis no-bis pec-ca-to-ri-bus

nunc et in ho-ra ho-ra mor-tis
ho-ra mor-tis nos-trae.
