Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae;
vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve.
Ad te clamamus exsules filii Hevae.
Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle.
Eia ergo, advocata nostra,
illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte.
Et Iesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.
O clemens, o pia, o dulcis Virgo Maria.
V. Ora pro nobis, sancta Dei Genitrix.
R. Ut digni efficamur promissionibus Christi.
Oremus. Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui
gloriosae Virginis Matris Mariae corpus et animam,
ut dignum Filii tui habitaculum effici mereretur,
Spiritu Sancto cooperante, praeparasti, da, ut cuius
commemoratione laetamur; eius pia intercessione,
ab instantibus malis et a morte perpetua liberemur.
Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
Hail Holy Queen
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To thee to we send up our sighs, mourning
and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us,
and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed
fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray. Almighty and everlasting God, Who by
the working of the Holy Spirit didst prepare both
body and soul of the glorious Virgin Mother, Mary,
that she might deserve to be made a worthy dwelling
for Thy Son, grant that we who rejoice in her
memory, may, by her loving intercession, be delivered
from present evils and from lasting death, through
the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
The great seasonal Marian antiphons are four beautiful and ancient prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary. They come from
the Divine Office, office of Compline, the last of the sung
hours of the day; and they are said or sung immediately
before going to sleep.
The Marian antiphons are “seasonal” because they shift
according to the liturgical seasons of the year. Each of the four
also has a simple tone Gregorian melody that accompanies
the Latin text.
When sung at the conclusion of Mass, only the anthem is
sung, the anthem is in bold text.
Alma Redemptoris Mater
The Alma Redemptoris Mater is sung from the first Sunday of
Advent until the Feast of the Purification on February 2 (the
original ending date of the Christmas season).
Ave Regina Caelorum
The Ave Regina Caelorum is sung from Candlemas Day (the
Feast of the Presentation, February 2) through Wednesday of
Holy Week (the Wednesday before Easter).
The Regina Caeli is sung throughout Eastertide, from Easter
Day through Pentecost, the seventh Sunday after Easter.
The Salve Regina is sung from the day after Pentecost Sunday
until the first Sunday of Advent.
