Ave Maria

Now the live-long day is done, Ave Maria:
And the stars gleam one by one, Ave Maria:
Now from out the old church-tow’r
Tolls the restful ev’ning hour,
Save me from evil pow’r, Ave Maria.

So my life will speed away, Ave Maria:
So will fade my little day, Ave Maria:
Mother, when my passing hour
Tolls from out the old church-tow’r,
Help me by thy grace and pow’r, Ave Maria.
