Alma Redemptoris Mater

Alma Redemptoris Mater, quae pervia caeli
Porta manes, et stella maris, sucurre cadenti,
Surgere qui curat populo: tu quae genuisti,
Natura mirante, tuum sanctum Genitorem,
Virgo prius ac posterius, Gabrielis ab ore
Sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere.

Usque ad diem 23 decembris:
V. Angelus Domini nuntiavit Mariae.
R. Et concepit de Spiritu Sancto.Oremus. Gratiam
tuam, quaesumus, Domine, mentibus nostris infunde;
ut, qui, angelo nuntiante, Christi Filii tui incarnationem
cognovimus, per passionem ejus et crucem, ad
resurrectionis gloriam perducamur. Per eumdem Christum
Dominum nostrum. Amen.

A die 24 decembris:
V. Post partum, Virgo, inviolata permansisti.
R. Dei Genitrix, intercede pro nobis.Let us pray. Deus,
qui salutis aeternae, beatae Mariae virginitate fecudna,
humano generi praemia praestitisti: tribue, quaesumus,
ut ipsam pro nobis intercedere sentiamus, per quam
meruimus auctorem vitae suscipere, Dominum nostrum
Iesum Christum, Filium tuum. Amen

O Loving Mother of our Redeemer

O loving Mother of our Redeemer, gate of heaven, star of the sea,
Hasten to aid thy fallen people who strive to rise once more.
Thou who brought forth thy holy Creator, all
creation wond’ring,
Yet remainest ever Virgin, taking from Gabriel’s lips
that joyful “Hail!”: be merciful to us sinners.

Up through the day before Christmas Eve:
V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.Let us pray.
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our
hearts, that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy
Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may
by His passion and cross be brought to the glory of His
resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

From Christmas Eve on:
V. Thou gavest birth without loss of thy virginity:
R. Intercede for us, O holy Mother of God.Let us pray.
O God, Who by the fruitful virginity of blessed Mary
hast offered unto the human race the rewards of
eternal salvation, grant, we beseech thee, that we may
know the effects of her intercession, through whom we
have deserved to receive the author of life, our Lord
Jesus Christ, Thy Son. Amen

Et pro nobis Christum exora.

V. Dignare me laudare te, Virgo sacrata.
R. Da mihi virtutem contra hostes tuos.

Oremus. Concede, misericors Deus, fragilitati
nostrae praesidium: ut, qui sanctae Dei
Genitricis memoriam agimus; intercessionis eius
auxilio, a nostris iniquitatibus resurgamus. Per
eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

commemoratione laetamur; eius pia intercessione,
ab instantibus malis et a morte perpetua liberemur.
Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

Hail Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.

To thee to we send up our sighs, mourning
and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us,
and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed
fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray. Almighty and everlasting God, Who by
the working of the Holy Spirit didst prepare both
body and soul of the glorious Virgin Mother, Mary,
that she might deserve to be made a worthy dwelling
for Thy Son, grant that we who rejoice in her
memory, may, by her loving intercession, be delivered
from present evils and from lasting death, through
the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

the Divine Office, office of Compline, the last of the sung
hours of the day; and they are said or sung immediately
before going to sleep.

The Marian antiphons are “seasonal” because they shift
according to the liturgical seasons of the year. Each of the four
also has a simple tone Gregorian melody that accompanies
the Latin text.

When sung at the conclusion of Mass, only the anthem is
sung, the anthem is in bold text.
