O, sanctissima

O, sanctissima, o, piissima,
Dulcis Virgo Maria!
Mater amata, intemerata,
Ora, ora pro nobis!
Tua gaudia et suspiria
Juvent nos, o, Maria!
In te speramus, ad te clamamus,

Ora, ora pro nobis!Oh, the Most Holy one


Oh, the Most Holy one

Oh, the most holy one, oh, the most pious one,
Mild Virgin Mary!
Beloved mother, the most righteous one,
Pray, pray for us!
May your joy and your cry
Help us, oh, Mary!
We believe in you, we praise you,
Pray, pray for us!
