The Hail Mary or Ave Maria (Latin) is a traditional Christian prayer asking for the intercession of the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus.

The first part of the Hail Mary is taken from the Annunciation of the Angel Gabriel to Mary.

Áve María, grátia pléna, Dóminus técum. Benedícta tu in muliéribus, et benedíctus frúctus véntris túi, Iésus.
Sáncta María, Máter Déi, óra pro nóbis peccatóribus, nunc et in hóra mórtis nóstrae. Ámen.

See Wikipedia for a pronunciation.

In English:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee! Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

This prayer may be recited as a Rosary. A Rosary is a set of stringed beads with five sections and preparatory prayers and concluding prayers. There are the Five Mysteries of the Rosary. Pope John Paul II also added a new set of mysteries, the Mysteries of Light
