447. O Queen of Heaven

Regína caeli, laetáre, allelúia,
Quia quem meruísti portáre, allelúia,
Resurréxit sicut dixit, allelúia,
Ora pro nobis Deum, allelúia.

O Queen of heaven, be joyful, alleluia,
For he whom you have humbly borne for us, alleluia,
Has arisen, as he promised, alleluia,
Offer now our prayer to God, alleluia.
