Tota pulchra es Maria
before a statue of Our Lady.
 
La Purísima Inmaculada Concepción
by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1678)
in the Prado Museum, Madrid, Spain.

Tota pulchra es, Maria.
Tota pulchra es, Maria.
Et macula originalis non est in te.
Et macula originalis non est in te.
Tu gloria Ierusalem.
Tu laetitia Israel.
Tu honorificentia populi nostri.
Tu advocata peccatorum.
O Maria.
O Maria.
Virgo prudentissima.
Mater clementissima.
Ora pro nobis.
Intercede pro nobis ad Dominum Jesum Christum.

Thou art all fair, O Mary.
Thou art all fair, O Mary.
And the original stain is not in thee.
And the original stain is not in thee.
Thou art the glory of Jerusalem.
Thou, the joy of Israel.
Thou art the honour of our people.
Thou art the advocate of sinners.
O Mary.
O Mary.
Virgin most prudent.
Mother most tender.
Pray for us.
Intercede for us with Jesus Christ our Lord.
