From the recording The Beauty of Gregorian Chant
Hail, Mother of mercy,
Mother of God and Mother of pardon,
Mother of hope and Mother of grace,
Mother, full of holy gladness.
Hail, honor of the human race.
Hail most worthy Virgin
because thou overcomest all virgins
and art seated of in highest honor.
Hail, blest Virgin yet bearing child:
For He Who sits at the Father’s right hand,
The ruler of heaven, of earth and sky,
has sheltered Himself in thy womb.
Become, O Mother, our solace:
Be for us our source of joy,
and at the last, after this exile,
unite us with the praising celestial choir.
