Lyrics: Adelaide Anne Procter (1825-1864), 1862
1._A-ve Ma-ri-a! bright _ and pure,
Hear, _ O hear me when _ I pray;
Pains _ and plea-sures try _ the pil-_ grim, _
On _ his _ long and drea-ry way;
Fears and per-ils are a-round me,
A-ve Ma-ri-a, bright and pure,
O-ra pro me O-ra pro me.
3._Then _ shall I, if thou _ O Ma-ry,
Art _ my strong sup-port _ and stay,
Fear _ nor feel the tree-_ fold dan-_ ger, _
Stan-_ ding _ forth in dread ar-ray,
Now and e-ver shield and guard me.
A-ve Ma-ri-a, bright and pure,
O-ra pro me O-ra pro me.
2._A-ve Ma-ri-a, Queen _ of Hea-ven,
Teach, _ O teach me to _ o-bey,
Lead _ me on through fierce _ temp-ta-_ tions, _
Stand _ and _ meet me in the way,
When I fail and faint, my mo-ther.
A-ve Ma-ri-a, bright and pure,
O-ra pro me O-ra pro me.
4._When _ my eyes are slow-_ ly clo-sing,
And _ I fade from earth _ a-way,
And _ when Death, the stern _ de-stro-_ yer, _
Claims _ my _ bo-dy as his prey,
Claim my soul, and then, sweet Ma-ry,
A-ve Ma-ri-a, bright and pure,
O-ra pro me O-ra pro me.
