Ave Maria, Ave Maria! The heavens were opened,
Our Lady appeared at Fatima one day,
To tell us again of the great need for prayer.
As her children we answer this way:
1. Dear Lady of Fatima, we come on bended knee
To beg your intercession for peace and unity.
Dear Mary, won't you show us the right and shining way?
We pledge our love and offer you a rosary each day.
2. You promised at Fatima each time that you appeared
To help us if we pray to you to banish was and fear.
Dear Lady, on first Saturdays, we ask your guiding hand
For grace and guidance her on earth
And protection for our land.
