Here is the lyric:



(Ellen’s Prayer)


Ave Maria! Maiden mild! O, listen to a maiden’s prayer!

Thou canst hear though from the wild, thou canst save amid despair.


Ave Maria! Ave Maria!


May safe we sleep beneath thy care, though banished, outcast and reviled.

O, maiden! Hear a maiden’s prayer,


Let thy protection hover there,

The murky cavern’s heavy air shall breathe of balm if thou hast smiled;


Then maiden hear me as I pray,

Ave Maria,

Maria, Ave!


(After Walter Scott)
