May 4th Month of Mary

THE PRAYER, AVE MARIS STELLA.

Hail bright star of ocean, God’s own Mother blest, Ever sinless Virgin, Gate of heavenly rest Taking that sweet Ave Which from Gabriel came, Peace confirm within us, Changing Eva’s name. Break the captives’ fetters, Light on blindness pour, All our ills expelling, Every bliss implore. Show thyself a Mother; May the Word Divine, Born for us thy Infant, Hear our prayers through thine Virgin all excelling, Mildest of the mild, Freed from guilt, preserve us, Pure and undefiled. Keep our life all spotless, Make our way secure, Till we find in Jesus Joy for evermore Through the highest heaven o the Almighty Three Father, Son, and Sprit One same glory be forever and ever.
