Ave Maria, O Maiden, O Mother

Slovac Hymnal

1. 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 Sanctissima, Ave Purissima,
sinless and beautiful Star of the sea.

2. 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…

3. 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…

4. Ave Maria, thou portal of heaven,
Harbor of refuge, to thee do we flee:
Lost in the darkness, by stormly winds driven,
Shine on our pathway, fair Star of the Sea!

Mater amabilis…
