443. O Queen of Heaven (Regina Caeli)

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.[

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