Hymn: Ave Maris Stella

Here’s a very beautiful hymn. We shall go through this, and penetrate into the mystery of this hymn at the next lesson.

avemaris

Ave, Star of Ocean,
Child Divine who barest,
Mother, Ever-Virgin,
Heaven’s Portal fairest.

Taking that sweet Ave
Erst by Gabriel spoken,
Eva’s name reversing,
Be of peace the token.

Break the sinners’ fetters,
Light to blind restoring,
All our ills dispelling,
Every boon imploring.

Show thyself a Mother
In thy supplication;
He will hear who chose thee
At His Incarnation.

Maid all maids excelling,
Passing meek and lowly,
Win for sinners pardon,
Make us chaste and holy.

As we onward journey
Aid our weak endeavor,
Till we gaze on Jesus
And rejoice forever.

Father, Son, and Spirit,
Three in One confessing,
Give we equal glory
Equal praise and blessing. Amen.
