Ave Regina Cælorum

Again, trying to stay literal, the Lenten hymn to Our Lady.

Hail, O Queen of heaven high,
Angels' Mistress, hail, we cry!

Gate of heaven, root most bright
From which sprang creation's light!

Joyful be, O maiden fairest,
Of all virgins brightest, rarest!

Farewell, fairest, full of grace;
Pray to Christ for all our race.
