Loving mother of the Redeemer,
gate of heaven, star of the sea,
assist your people who have fallen yet strive to rise again.
To the wonderment of nature you bore your Creator,
yet remained a virgin as before.
You who received Gabriel's joyful greeting,
have pity on us, poor sinners.
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,
that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
