The Angelic Salutation (Hail Mary)

The Angelic Salutation to the most holy Mother of God:

Virgin Mother of God, rejoice, Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, for thou hast borne Christ the Saviour, the Deliverer of our souls. (recited three times with bows)
