LYRICS

Hail Mary, the Lord is with thee
You are most blessed, Our Lady full of Grace
For you bore for us, our blessed Jesus
Fruit of your body as God became a man

Ave, ave, ave Maria (2)

Hail Mary, the Lord is with thee
You are most blessed, Our Lady full of Grace
And so we ask you, O holy Mary
Intercede for us now and at our death
