Daughters Of Mary – Ave Maris Stella lyrics

[Verse 1]
Ave Maris Stella
Dei Mater alma
Atque semper Virgo
Felix coeli porta.

[Verse 2]
Sumens illud Ave
Gabrielis ore,
Funda nos in pacem,
Mutans Hevae nomen.

[Verse 3]
Solve vincla reis,
Profer lumen coecis,
Mala nostra pelle,
Bona cuncta posce.

[Verse 4]
Monstra te esse matrem
Sumat per te presces
Qui pro nobis natus
Tulit esse tuus.

[Verse 5]
Virgo singularis,
Inter omnes mitis,
Nos culpis solutos,
Mites fac et castos.

[Verse 6]
Vitam praesta puram
Iter para tutum,
Ut videntes Iesum
Semper collaetemur.

[Verse 7]
Sit laus Deo Patri,
Summo Christo decus,
Spiritui Sancto,
Tribus honor unus.

    Translation into English from Latin:

    [Verse 1]
    Hail, O Star of the Sea,
    Mother of God, nurturing
    and ever-Virgin,
    Blessed Gate of Heaven.

    [Verse 2]
    Taking up that "Hail"
    from the mouth of Gabriel,
    Establish us in peace,
    Transforming the name of Eve.

    [Verse 3]
    Break the chains of the guilty,
    Deliver light to the blind,
    Drive away our wickedness,
    For all blessings pray.

    [Verse 4]
    Show yourself to be a mother;
    May he take up our prayers through you,
    He who was born for us,
    Who deigned to be yours.

    [Verse 5]
    O singular Virgin,
    Meek among all,
    Make us free from our faults
    And guiltless.

    [Verse 6]
    Bestow on us a pure life,
    Prepare for us way secure,
    That, seeing Jesus,
    We may together rejoice forever.

    [Verse 7]
    Praise be to God the Father,
    Glory to Christ the Most High,
    to the Holy Spirit,
    Honor to the Three in One.
