Celine Dion: Ave Maria Song Lyrics
Verse 1
Ave Maria! Maiden mild!
Oh, listen to a maiden's prayer
For thou can't hear amid the wild
'Tis thou, 'tis thou canst save amid, despair.
We slumber safely 'til the morrow
Though we've by man outcast reviled
Oh, maiden, see a maiden's sorrow
Oh, Mother, hear a suppliant child!
Ave Maria

Verse 2
Ave Maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Ave, ave dominus
Dominus tecum

Verse 3
The murky cavern's air so heavy
Shall breath of balm if thou hast smiled
Oh, maiden, hear a maiden pleadin'
Oh, Mother, hear a suppliant child
Ave Maria
Ave Maria .

"The Lady of the Lake"
(Lyrics by Walter Scott)

Ave Maria! maiden mild!
Listen to a maiden's prayer!
Thou canst hear though from the wild,
Thou canst save amid despair.
Safe may we sleep beneath thy care,
Though banish'd, outcast and reviled -
Maiden! hear a maiden's prayer;
Mother, hear a suppliant child!
Ave Maria!

From Traditional Latin Prayer
Ave Maria,
Gratia plena
Dominus tecum
Benedicta tu in mulieribus


From "The Lady Of The Lake" by Walter Scott

The murky cavern's heavy air
Shall breathe of balm if thou hast smiled;
Then, Maiden! hear a maiden's prayer;
Mother, list a suppliant child!
Ave Maria!
