Libretto/text

Ave maris stella, Dei mater alma atque semper virgo felix coeli porta. Virgo singularis, inter omnes mites, nos culpis solutos mites facet castos.

Vitam praesta puram, iter paratutum ut videntes Jesum, semper collaetemur. Sit laus Deo Patri, summo Chrisi decus, Spirito sancto, tribus honor unus.
