Santa Maria in Traspontina

Flos carmeli,
Vitis florigera
Splendor coeli,
Virgo puerpera
Singularis.

Mater mitis,
sed viri nescia
Carmelitis
Da privilegia
Stella maris.

Radix Jesse
Germinans flosculum,
Hic adesse
Me tibi servulum
Patiaris!

Inter spinas
Quae crescis lilium
Serva puras
Mentes fragilium
Tutelaris!

Armaturis
Fortis pugnantium
Furun bella
Tende praesidium
Scapularis!

Per incerta
Prudens consilium
Per adversa
Juge solatium
Largiaris.

Flower of Carmel,
Blossom on the vine,
Splendor of Heaven,
Virgin bearing child,
Singular.

Gentle mother,
Yet unknown to man,
Give your Rule
To the Carmelites,
Star of the Sea.

Stem of Jesse
Sprouting a blossom
Be thou near me.
And permit me
To be thy servant!

Lily which grows
Among the thorns,
Preserve as innocent
And protect
The minds of the weak!

Strong armour
Of the fighting men
The wars are raging
Extend the protection
Of the scapular.

Through uncertainty
You lavish
Wise council,
And through adversity
Eternal consolation.
