Text & English Translation
Surgamus omnes, cantemus et laudemus Deum nostrum in solemnitate sanctæ Mariæ virginis, de cuius festivitate iubilet terra nostra, lætatur cœlum, Paradisus exultat, et nos unanimes cum devotione gaudemus. Laudemus ergo Deum nostrum in solemnitate Beatæ Mariæ Virginis.
O mundi splendor, O cœli decus, O Maria peccatorum advocata. Te corde et cantu, te ore ac votes hodie honoramus, cuius memoria terra nostra triumphat.
Nos igitur in tuo honore hodie congregatos adiuva, et recinente tuba per mare tranquilla, per terras benigna, sit gloriosa tui memoria; et omnes qui in te sperant tibi laudes ac triumphos decantent.
Let us all arise, let us sing and praise our God on this feast-day of the holy Virgin Mary, on whose festival our land is jubilant; heaven rejoices, Paradise exults, and we with one soul rejoice with devotion. Let us then praise our God on this feast-day of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
O splendor of the world, O glory of heaven, O Mary, you advocate for sinners, with our heart and song, with our tongue and vows today we honor you, you in whose commemoration our land triumphs.
So aid us who are gathered together today in your honor, and with a sounding trumpet, let your recollection be glorious, tranquil at sea, kindly on land; and let all who hope in you sing praises and triumphs to you.
