Abstract

Ave Maria!
Mighty, yet lowly,
Pure and most holy,
Hear from thy starry throne our prayer:
Though faithless friends may grieve us,
Wealth and fortune leave us,
Grant to our grief and to our pain thy tender care.
Sancta Maria! Sancta Maria! Maria!
When we are tearful,
When we are fearful,
Give to us thine aid,
to us thine aid, thine aid of prayer!

Ave Maria!
Mother of the desolate!
Guide of the unfortunate!
Hear from thy starry throne our prayer:
If sorrow will await us,
Tyrants vex and hate us,
Teach us thine own most patient part to bear!
Sancta Maria! Sancta Maria! Maria!
When we are sighing,
When we are dying,
Give to us thine aid,
to us thine aid, thine aid of prayer!
Amen!
