Ave, maris stella,

Atque semper Virgo

   Hail, star of the sea,
   Nurturing Mother of God,
   And ever Virgin
   Happy gate of Heaven.

Sumens illud Ave

Funda nos in pace, Mutans Evae nomen.

   Receiving that "Ave" (hail)
   From the mouth of Gabriel,
   Establish us in peace,
   Transforming the name of "Eva" (Eve).

(The word "Hail" in Latin [Ave] is the reverse spelling of the Latin for "Eve" [Eva].)

Solve vincla reis, Profer lumen caecis, Mala nostra pelle, Bona cuncta posce.

   Loosen the chains of the guilty,
   Send forth light to the blind,
   Our evil do thou dispel,
   Entreat (for us) all good things.

Monstra te esse matrem, Sumat per te preces Qui, pro nobis natus, Tulit esse tuus.

   Show thyself to be a Mother:
   Through thee may he (Jesus) receive (our) prayers
   Who, being born for us,
   Undertook to be thine own [Son].

Virgo singularis Inter omnes mitis, Nos culpis solutos, Mites fac et castos.

   O unique Virgin,
   Meek above all others,
   Having absolved our sins,
   Make us meek and chaste.
