Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you, serene Virgin.
You are blessed among women, an blessed is the fruit of your womb,
Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy, O Christ hear us.
Holy Mary, pray for us to the Lord.
O Christ hear us.
Holy Mother Mary, pray for us to the Lord.
O Christ hear us.
Saint Michael, pray for us to the Lord. O Christ hear us.
