Latin Lyrics / 日本詩

Ave maris stella, Dei Mater alma,
atque semper Virgo, felix caeli porta.
Sumens illud Ave Gabrielis ore,
funda nos in pace, mutans Hevae nomen.
Solve vincula reis, profer lumen caecis
mala nostra pelle, bona cuncta posce.
Monstra te esse matrem: sumat per te preces,
qui pro nobis natus, tulit esse tuus.
Virgo singularis, inter omnes mites,
nos culpis solutos, mites fac et castos.
Vitam praesta puram, iter para tutum:
ut videntes Iesum semper collaetemur.
Sit laus Deo Patri, summo Christo decus,
Spiritui Sancto, tribus honor unus.

English Translation / 英語訳

Hail, star of the ocean, God's own Mother blest,
Ever sinless Virgin, gate of heavenly rest.
Taking that sweet Ave, which from Gabriel came,
Peace confirm within us, changing Eve's name.
Break the sinners' fetters, make our blindness day,
Chase all evils from us, for all blessings pray.
Show thyself a Mother, may the Word Divine
Born for us thy Infant hear our prayers through thine.
Virgin all excelling, mildest of the mild,
Free from guilt, preserve us meek and undefiled.
Keep our life all spotless, make our way secure
Till we find in Jesus, joy for evermore.
Praise to God the Father, honor to the Son,
In the Holy Spirit, be the glory one.
