Ave Maria ! O Maiden ! O Mother !

Fondly thy children are calling on thee,

Thine are the graces unclaimed by another,

Sinless and beautiful, Star of the Sea!

Mater Amabilis, ora pro nobis !

Pray for thy children who call upon thee;

Ave Santisiima ! Ave purissima !

Sinless and beautiful Star of the Sea.


Ave Maria ! the night shades are falling,

Softly our voices arise unto thee,

Earth’s lonely exiles for succour are calling,

Sinless and beautiful, Star of the Sea.

Mater Amabilis, ora pro nobis ! etc.


Ave Maria ! thy children are kneeling,

Words of endearment are murmured to thee;

Softly thy spirit upon us is stealing,

Sinless and beautiful, Star of the Sea.

Mater Amabilis, ora pro nobis ! etc.


Ave Maria ! thou portal of Heaven,

Harbour of refuge, to thee do we flee;

Lost in the darkness, by stormy winds driven,

Shine on our pathway, fair Star of the Sea.

Mater Amabilis, ora pro nobis ! etc.
