Lyrics:
When the ra-diant beams of day
Fade in twi-light's shades a-way,
When the ves-per star se-rene,
Sweet-ly calm-ly, bright is seen,
Heav'n-ly Vir-gin, Heav'n-ly Vir-gin,
Heav'n-ly Vir-gin, hear our pray'r,
E-ver till the world shall end
May the song to thee as-cend.
A-ve, A-ve, A-ve, A-ve, A-ve Ma-ri-a.

Sure-ly as the fa-ding light
Ush-ers in the gloom of night,
Will our lives, a flee-ting day,
Quick-ly fade and pass a-way.
Heav'n-ly Vir-gin, Heav'n-ly Vir-gin,
Heav'n-ly Vir-gin, hear our pray'r,
Hear us when Death's sha-dows low'r
Dark-ly o'er life's clo-sing hour.
A-ve, A-ve, A-ve, A-ve, A-ve Ma-ri-a.
