Text & Translation
Venimus in altitudinem maris, et motus magnus factus est; flaverunt venti, surrexit aquilo et spiritus procellarum.
Curre Maria, succurre, stella maris, mare magnum absorbet nos. Exaltantur fluctus eius, ascendunt usque ad cælum et descendunt usque ad abissos. O clemens, O pia, succurre, Maria.
Opecitur navicula fluctibus, intrant aquæ in animam nostram.
Curre, Maria, succurre, stella Maris, O clemens, O pia, succurre, Maria.
O qualis tempesta, heu miseri, demergit nos, absorbet nos, succurre, O pia, succurre, O Maria. Perimus, salva nos, curre, O Maria, O clemens, O pia, succurre, Maria.
Stella maris, impera venti, impera mari, sileant fluctus, desinat luctus, fiat magna tranquillitas. Curre, lux, O salutaris fida dux, O stella maris, O clemens, O pia, succurre, Maria.
We came upon high seas, and there was great storm; the winds blew, the North Wind and the spirit of the storm arose.
Hurry Mary, help us, star of the sea, the great sea is swallowing us. Its waves are raised up, they arise to heaven and descend to the abysses. O merciful, O good Mary, hasten to help us.
Our ship founders in the waves; the waters enter into our soul.
Hurry Mary, help us, star of the sea; O merciful, O good Mary, run to aid us.
O what a tempest, O we miserable ones, overcomes us and swallows us; help us, O good one, hurry to help us, O Mary. We are perishing, save us, hurry, O Mary, O merciful one, O good one, hurry to help us, Mary.
Star of the sea, command the wind, command the sea, let the waves be silent, let the waters desist, let there be great calm. Hurry, you light, O faithful guide to salvation, O star of the sea, O merciful one, O good Mary, help us.
