⁣The "Alma Redemptoris Mater" is one of the four Marian Antiphons sung at the end of the liturgy of the hours. Its author is believed to be Hermannus Contractus ("Herman the Lame"; 1013-1054). It is traditionally sung after the recitation of Compline from the first Sunday of Advent until the Feast of Candlemas or Feast of the Purification of the Virgin (2 February)

Alma Redemptoris Mater, quæ pervia cæli
Porta manes, et stella maris, succurre cadenti,
Surgere qui curat, populo: tu quæ genuisti,
Natura mirante, tuum sanctum Genitorem
Virgo prius prius ac posterius, Gabrielis ab ore
Sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere.

Loving Mother of the Redeemer,
who remains the accessible Gateway of Heaven,
and Star of the Sea,
Give aid to a falling people
that strives to rise;
O Thou who begot thy holy Creator,
while all nature marvelled,
Virgin before and after
receiving that "Ave" from the mouth of Gabriel,
have mercy on sinners.
