Salve Regina - Hail Holy Queen - Video (2)

Gregorian Chant, Salve Regina, Irish Tenors

Original Text
English Translation

Salve Regina, mater misericordiae!
Vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve!
Hail to thee, Queen, mother of mercy!
Our life, our consolation, and our hope, hail to thee!

Ad te clamamus exules filii Evae.
Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes,
in hac lacrymarum valle.
To thee we cry, we, the banished children of Eve.
To thee we sigh, sorrowing and weeping,
in this vale of tears.

Eja ergo, advocata nostra,
oculos tuos ad nos converte.
Oh thou, our advocate,
turn thine eyes upon us.

Et post hoc exilium ostende nobis Jesum,
fructum ventris tui,
And after our exile show to us Jesus,
the fruit of thy womb.

O clemens, o pia,
o dulcis virgo Maria!
Oh compassionate, oh pious,
oh sweet Virgin Mary!
