Refrain :
Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum, benedicta tu.

1) As I kneel before you,
As I bow my head in prayer,
Take this day, make it yours,
And fill me with your love. ( R )

2) All I have I give you,
Ev’ry dream and wish are yours,
Mother of Christ, Mother of mine,
Present them to my Lord. ( R )

3) As I kneel before you,
And I see your smiling face,
Ev’ry thought, ev’ry word
Is lost in your embrace. ( R )
