O pure Mother,
you are she who is full of grace;
it is you who have found the Lord’s favor.
Preserved from all sin from the womb,
overflowing with all His blessings,
you are the hope of our race,
the one created soul most like to God –
pray for us this day, dear Mother,
that we might be kept from the snares of the world,
from the enticements of the devil.
O help us be pure as you,
obedient to the will of the Father,
bringing His Son into this world
by the Holy Spirit’s power.
You who now reign in Heaven
with the Lord, your only Son,
intercede for us who toil on earth
that we too might enter God’s presence;
you who are blessed to be one with Him,
pray the Church you bear be so well founded.
Hail, Full of Grace!
Your name be blessed forever
by all generations.
