O senza macchia pura, o Vergine Signora

Salve sposa non sposata!

O Madre Regina, O rugiadoso vello
Salve sposa non sposata!

O trascendente cielo, o raggio più lucente
Salve sposa non sposata!

O gioia verginale, che supera gli angeli
Salve sposa non sposata!

O brillante chiara luce, radiante e celeste
Salve sposa non sposata!

Dei cieli Comandante, dei santi la più santa
Salve sposa non sposata!

Maria, Sempre Vergine, Signora del creato
Salve sposa non sposata!

Immacolata Pura, O Signora Santissima
Salve sposa non sposata!

Maria sposa Regina, motivo di gioia
Salve sposa non sposata!

Modesta Figlia Regina, O Madre Santissima
Salve sposa non sposata!

Più dei Cherubini, gloriosa e venerabile
Salve sposa non sposata!

Degli incorporei Serafini supera i Troni
Salve sposa non sposata!

Salve canto cherubico, salve inno angelico
Salve sposa non sposata!

Salve Ode dei Serafini, Salve gioia arcangelica
Salve sposa non sposata!

Salve Pace e gioia, porto di salvezza
Salve sposa non sposata!

Sacro Talamo del Verbo, incorruttibile fiore
Salve sposa non sposata!

Salve Paradiso, beata vita eterna
Salve sposa non sposata!

Salve Albero di vita, fonte di immortalità
Salve sposa non sposata!

Ti chiedo Sovrana, t’invoco ora
Salve sposa non sposata!

Ti prego Sovrana, di tutti la Regina
Salve sposa non sposata!

Figlia umile e pura, Vergine Sovrana
Salve sposa non sposata!

T’invoco con forza, O sacro Tempio
Salve sposa non sposata!

Aiutami, proteggimi dal nemico
Salve sposa non sposata!

E rendimi erede della vita eterna
Salve sposa non sposata!

Refrain: Rejoice, O Unwedded Bride!
 O Virgin pure, immaculate/ O Lady Theotokos
O Virgin Mother, Queen of all/ and fleece which is all dewy
More radiant than the rays of sun/ and higher than the heavens
Delight of virgin choruses/ superior to Angels.
Much brighter than the firmament/ and purer than the sun's light
More holy than the multitude/ of all the heav'nly armies.

Rejoice, O Unwedded Bride!

O Ever Virgin Mary/ of all the world, the Lady
O bride all pure, immaculate/ O Lady Panagia
O Mary bride and Queen of all/ our cause of jubilation
Majestic maiden, Queen of all/ O our most holy Mother
More hon'rable than Cherubim/ beyond compare more glorious
than immaterial Seraphim/ and greater than angelic thrones.

Rejoice, O Unwedded Bride!

Rejoice, O song of Cherubim/ Rejoice, O hymn of angels
Rejoice, O ode of Seraphim/ the joy of the archangels
Rejoice, O peace and happiness/ the harbor of salvation
O sacred chamber of the Word/ flow'r of incorruption
Rejoice, delightful paradise/ of blessed life eternal
Rejoice, O wood and tree of life/ the fount of immortality.

Rejoice, O Unwedded Bride!

I supplicate you, Lady/ now do I call upon you
And I beseech you, Queen of all/ I beg of you your favor
Majestic maiden, spotless one/ O Lady Panagia
I call upon you fervently/ O sacred, hallowed temple
Assist me and deliver me/ protect me from the enemy
And make me an inheritor/ of blessed life eternal.

Rejoice, O Unwedded Bride!
