Flos virginum,
celi ac terræ decus,
sacra et ineffabilis Virgo Maria,
Salvatoris nostri mater,
a qua quicquid postulaveris
impetraturam esse confidimus

Du Blüte der Jungfrauen,
des Himmels und der Erde Zier,
heilige und unaussprechliche Jungfrau Maria,
unseres Erlösers Mutter,
von der wir fest glauben, daß du erlangen wirst,
was immer du erbitten wirst.
