AVE MARIS STELLA (excerpt) from True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin


Hail bright star of the 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. Mother;
May the Word Divine,
Born for us thy Infant,
Hear our prayers through thine...
