Text and Translation: Ne Timeas Maria

LatinEnglish Translation
Ne timeas, Maria;
invenisti enim gratiam
apud Dominum:
ecce concipies in utero,
et paries filium,
et vocabitur Altissimi Filius.
Fear not, Mary,
for thou hast found favour
with the Lord;
and behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb
and bring forth a son;
and he shall be called the Son of the Most High.
