Per le ful-gen-ti cu-po-le do-ra-te

U-na nu-be d'in-cen-so_al ciel vo-la-va,
E dol-ce-men-te da ogni lab-bro_u-sei-a: A-ve Ma-ri-a.

Nel-la blan-da me-sti-zia di quell-l'o-ra
Tut-ta se-re-ni-t di pa-ra-di-so,

Dall' az-zur-ro del ciel sten-di la ma-no

Deh! Ch'io nel pian-to non t'in-vo-chi in-va-no,
Ar-ri-di_al-l'a-mor mio, Ver-gi-ne san-ta:
Ab-bi pie-t di me, Ver-gi-ne pi-a. A-ve Ma-ri-a.
