Ave Maria - The song (English)

Ave Maria
Virgin of the sky
Sovereign of thanksgiving and loving mother
Accept the fervent prayer of everybody
Do not refuse
To this lost person of mine, love
Truce in his pain!
My lost soul turns to you
And full of repentment, humbles at your feet
It invokes you and waits for the true peace
That only you can give
Ave Maria

And blessed
And blessed be the product of your womb
Your womb, Jesus.

About the prayer Ave Maria
The Ave Maria (Latin) also commonly called The Hail Mary (english) or Angelic Salutation is a well known Catholic prayer asking for the intercession of the mother of Jesus, the Blessed Virgin Mary. The prayer forms the basis of the Rosary and the Angelus prayers in Roman Catholicism. A similar prayer is used in formal liturgies in the Eastern Orthodox Churches and Eastern Catholic Churches, both in Greek and in translations. It is used by most denominations of the Catholic tradition of Christianity including Anglicans, Independent Catholics, and Old Catholics. Some Protestant groups, such as Lutherans, also make use of a form of the prayer.
The prayer takes different forms in various traditions, based on the greeting of the archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary in the Gospel of Luke. It has often been set to music, although the most famous musical expression of the words Ave Maria — that by Franz Schubert — does not actually contain the Hail Mary prayer.
