Virgo Dei Genetrix LATIN JPEG

1.  O Virgin Mother of God,
     He Whom the whole earth cannot contain,
     enclosed Himself, made man, within your womb.

2.  The true faith of the Son has cleansed the
     world’s sins,
     and your virginity remains inviolate.    

3.  Mother of tenderness, 
     the world is crying out to you for your help:
     come to the aid of your servants, O blessed lady.

4.  Great glory be to the Father,
     equal glory be to the Son;
     and the Holy Spirit, great glory to God.  Amen.
