Ave Maria, gratia plena
Dominus tecum, benedicta tu
In mulieribus et benedictus
Fructus ventris tui Jesus.
Sancta Maria, Sancta Maria,
Maria ora pro nobis,
Nobis pecatoribus,
Nunc et in ora,
In ora mortis nostrae.

Translation (semi-literal):
Ave, Maria!
Thou happy mother,
God is with thee,
Blessed, blessed art thou
Above all mothers,
Since in Bethlehem,
Came to thee the angel of the Lord.
Honour'd and blessed,
Honour'd and blessed Maria,
Mother of Jesus,
Infant Redeemer,
Born to save us from
Our sins and all our heavy woes.
So be it.

Translation (vernacular English):
Hail Mary,
Full of grace,
The Lord is with thee,
Blessed art thou amongst women,
And blessed is the fruit thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death.
