Hail Mary in French – Je Vous Salue Marie 🙏

Author: Camille Chevalier-Karfis

My enunciated recording of the Catholic mass is so popular that I thought I’d record the “Je vous Salue Marie” (“Hail Mary” in French) prayer as well.

Hail Mary in French: “Je Vous Salue Marie” –  Audio Recording

Here is the audio recording of the Hail Mary Prayer in French. I first recorded it at a normal speed and then, recorded it at a slower, much more enunciated speed so you can train on repeating after me.

My French learning method “À Moi Paris” is also recorded at several levels of enunciation.

Je vous salue, Marie pleine de grâce ;
le Seigneur est avec vous.
Vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes et Jésus,
le fruit de vos entrailles, est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu,
priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant et à l’heure de notre mort.

À Moi Paris Audiobook Method

A new approach to learning both traditional and modern French logically structured for English speakers.

Literal English translation of the French Hail Mary

I salute you Mary, full of grace:
Our Lord is with you.
You are blessed among all women and Jesus,
the fruit of your womb, is blessed.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us  poor sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.

Hail Mary in French: “Je Vous Salue Marie” – Slower Recorded

Now, here is the prayer recorded slow enough so you can repeat after me to train on your pronunciation:

(The  picture illustrating this article is one of my favorites of Mary and Jesus. It’s called “La Madonne aux Lys”, by William-Adolphe Bouguereau, 1899).

Far from me to proselytize, but my recording of the French Catholic mass might also interest you, as well as the typical celebrations of Holidays in France.

Can You Understand Today’s Spoken French?

It’s not just slang. The French everybody speaks in France today is NOT the overly enunciated, extremely formal French usually taught to foreigners.
