Hail Blessed Virgin Mary
(trad arr. Wood)

1._Hail! Bless-ed Vir-gin Ma-ry!
For so, when he did meet thee,
Spake might-y Ga-bri-el,
and thus we greet thee.
Come weal, come woe, our
hymn shall nev-er var-y.
Hail! Bless-ed Vir-gin Ma-ry!
Hail! Bless-ed Vir-gin Ma-ry!
2._A-ve! A-ve Ma-ri-a!
To glad-den priest and peo-ple,
The an-ge-lus shall ring
from e-vry steep-le,
To sound his vir-gin birth.
A-ve! A-ve Ma-ri-a!
A-ve! A-ve Ma-ri-a!
3._Arch-an-gels chant, 'Ho-san-na!'
And, 'Ho-ly! Ho-ly! Ho-ly!'
Be-fore the In-fant born
of thee, thou low-ly,
Aye, mai-den child of
Jo-a-chim and An-na.
Arch-an-gels chant Ho-san-na!
Arch-an-gels chant Ho-san-na!
