Ave Maris Stella, Op. 19b, B95A | Text

Ave, maris stella,
Dei mater alma,
atque semper virgo,
felix coeli porta.
Sumens illud Ave,
Gabrielis ab ore,
funda nos in pace,
mutans Evae nomen.
Hail, star of the sea,
nurturing Mother of God,
and ever Virgin
happy gate of Heaven.
Receiving that Ave,
from the mouth of Gabriel,
establish us in peace,
transforming the name of Eva.
