Fa-ding still fa-ding, the last _ beam is shi-ning
A-ve Ma-ri-a day _ is de-cli-ning
Safe-ty and in-no-cence fly with the light
Temp-ta-tion and dan-ger walk forth _ with the night
From the fall of the shade till the ma-tin shall chime
Shield us from dan-ger and save _ us from crime
A-ve Ma-ri-a, A-ve Ma-ri-a,
A-ve Ma-ri-a, _ au-_ _ di _ _ _ nos.


A-ve Ma-ri-a. O, hear _ when _ we call
Mo-ther of Him who is _ bro-ther of all
Fee-ble and fai-ling we trust in thy might
In doub-ting and dark-ness thy love _ is our light
Let us sleep on thy breast while the night ta-per burns
And wake in thine arms when the mor-ning re-turns.
A-ve Ma-ri-a, A-ve Ma-ri-a,
A-ve Ma-ri-a, _ au-_ _ di _ _ _ nos.
