Lyrics: 1872 edition  Score:

A-ve  Ma-ri-a hear the prayer
Of thy  poor help-less child!
Be-neeth thy sweet ma-ter-nal care,
Pre-serve -me-un-de-filed!  

A-ve Ma-ri-a! do  I sigh
In deep af-flic-tion's hour
Nor to a sup-pliant heart   
de-ny Thy me-di-a-tive power!  

A-ve Ma-ri-a! for to thee!
Whom God  has pleased  
to choose the moth-er of His Son to be,
No prayer can he re-fuse! 

A-ve Ma-ri-a! then  im -plore 
One on-ly grace  for me,
This heart to give-for e-ver more
To God alone and Thee.
