Full text: 

Imperatrix gloriosa
Potens et imperiosa,
Iesu Christi generosa
Mater atque filia.

Radix Iesse spetiosa,
Virga florens et frondosa
Quam rigavit copiosa
Deitatis gratia.

Florem ergo genuisti
Ex quo fructum protulisti
Gabrieli cum fuisti
Paranympho credula.

 

English translation: 

Glorious Empress, powerful and imperious, generous mother and daughter of Jesus Christ.

Splendid root of Jesse, flowering and leafy branch, which the abundant Grace of God nourished.

Thus you bore the flower from which you brought forth the fruit, when you, trusting <him> were with Gabriel, the bridesman.
