O mitissima Virgo Maria
posce tuum filium
ut nobis auxilium
det et remedium
contra demonum
fallibiles astucias
et horum nequicias.

Virgo virginum,
lumen luminum,
reformatrix hominum,
quæ portasti Dominum:
per te, Maria,
detur venia,
angelo nunciante
virgo es post et ante.

Hæc dies.
 

English.png English translation

Oh, meekest virgin Mary,
ask your son
to give us help
and remedy
against the cunning
stratagems of the demons
and their wickedness.

Virgin of all virgins,
light of lights,
reformer of mankind,
who bore the Lord:
thanks to you, Mary,
was forgiveness granted,
as the angel announced that you
were to be virgin before, and after.

Today is the day.
