Ave maris stella – Stadlmayr

LATIN

  1. Ave maris stella, Dei Mater alma,
    Atque semper Virgo; Felix caeli porta.
  2. Sumens illud Ave Gabriélis ore,
    Funda nos in pace, Mutans Hevae nomen.
  3. Solve vincla reis, Profer lumen caecis:
    Mala nostra pelle, Bona cuncta posce.
  4. Monstra t’esse matrem: Sumat per te preces,
    Qui pro nobis natus, Tulit esse tuus.
  5. Virgo singuláris, Inter omnes mitis,
    Nos culpis salútos, Mites fac et castos.
  6. Vitam praesta puram, Iter para tutum:
    Ut vidéntes Iesum, Semper collaetémur.
  7. Sit laus Deo Patri, Summo Christo decus,
    Spirítui Sancto, Tribus honor unus. Amen.

TRANSLATION

  1. Hail, star of the sea, Nurturing Mother of God,
    And ever Virgin; Happy gate of Heaven.
  2. Receiving that Ave (greeting) From the mouth of Gabriel,
    Establish us in peace, Transforming the name of Eva (Eve).
  3. Loosen the chains of the guilty, Send forth light to the blind,
    Our evil do thou dispel, Entreat [for us] all good things.
  4. Show thyself to be a Mother: Through thee may He receive prayer
    Who, being born for us, Undertook to be thine own.
  5. O unique Virgin, Meek above all others,
    Make us, set free from [our] sins, Meek and chaste.
  6. Bestow a pure life, Prepare a safe way:
    That seeing Jesus, We may ever rejoice.
  7. Praise be to God the Father, To the Most High Christ [be] glory,
    To the Holy Spirit [be] honor, to the Three equally. Amen.
