1 Immaculate Mary, your praises we sing;
You reign now in splendor with Jesus, our King.
Ave, ave, ave, María!
Ave, ave, María!
2 In heaven the blessed your glory proclaim;
On earth we, your children, invoke your sweet name. [Refrain]
3 Your name is our power, your virtures our light;
Your love is our comfort, your prayers our might. [Refrain]
4 We pray for the Church, our true mother on earth;
And beg you to watch o'er the land of our birth. [Refrain]
