Ave Maria!
O listen to a prayer!
We pray, O Maria, hear this prayer!
We need Thy blessing this hour so fair.

Bless this love, this heavenly hour so fair,
bless this hour so fair!
Safe may we sleep beneath Thy care,
and guard this love we so tenderly share!
O Maiden, send your heavenly answer!
O Maiden, hear this fervent pray'r.
Ave Maria!

Bless this love, this heavenly hour so fair,

Safe may we sleep beneath Thy care,
and guard this love we so tenderly share!
O Maiden, send your heavenly answer!
O Maiden, hear this fervent pray'r.

Ave Maria!
O listen to a prayer!
O give to this love eternal wisdom,
and keep it safe from harm and woe.

Make this love a love that will constantly grow,
safe from harm and woe.
O Maiden, guard our love from harm,
O Maiden, guard our love from harm.
O Maiden, send thy heavenly answer,
O bless this love from your throne above!
Ave Maria!
