Full text: 

O Maria 
In supremo sita poli
Nos commenda tuae proli
Ne terrores sive doli
Nos supplantent hostium.

O Maria stella maris
Dignitate singularis
Super omnes ordinaris
Ordines caelestium.

Ave solem genuisti,
Ave prolem protulisti,
Mundo lapso contulisti
Vitam et imperium.

O Maria
Ad te flentes suspiramus,
Te gementes invocamus
Evae gens misera.

O regina pietatis,
Statum nostrae paupertatis
Vultu tuae bonitatis
Bene considera,
O lucerna sanctitatis.

English translation: 

O Mary, Placed in the highest spot of heaven, commend us to your Child, lest the terrors or evils of our enemies deceive us.

O Mary, star of the sea, singular in dignity, you are ordained above all the orders of the heavens.

Hail, you who have brought forth the Sun, hail you who have borne the Child, who have bestowed life and power upon the faltering world.

O Mary, to you we sigh crying, to you we invoke moaning, poor people of Eve

O Queen of pity, consider well the degree of our misery with the countenance of your goodness, o light of sanctity.
