Full text: 

Ave stella matutina,
Vita nostra, lux divina,
Lucens omne saeculum.

Nos defende a ruina,
Quae es vera medicina
peccatorum omnium.

Aures tuas nunc inclina,
Cum pietatis sis regina
Audi nostra cantica,

Quibus tibi nostros duces
Supplicamus ita duces
Omni cum familia,

Ut ducendo semper tui
Sint et possint post haec duci
Tecum ad celestia.

O gloriosa, o benedicta caeli regina, audi, exaudi nos, virgo Maria. Amen.


English translation: 

Hail, morning star, our life, divine light, illuminating the whole world.

Defend us from ruin, you who are true medicine for all sinners.

Incline your ears now, for you are the queen of compassion, hear our songs.

Through them we pray you to guide our rulers along with their entire household

in such a way that, while they lead, they always be yours, and so that they can afterwards be lead to the heavens with you.

O glorious, o blessed queen of heaven, hear us, listen to us, Virgin Mary. Amen.
