Below is the original Latin Prayer text and the English translation for this song:

Ave Maria gratia plena, Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus.

Sancta Maria Mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen


Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
