Ave Maris Stella Illustrated with Icons


unnamedAve Maris Stella

Hail, O Star of the ocean

God’s own Mother blest,

ever sinless Virgin,

gate of heav’nly rest. 

Taking that sweet Ave,

which from Gabriel came,

peace confirm within us,

changing Eve’s name.

Break the sinners’ fetters,

                                                                   make our blindness day,

Chase all evils from us, 77c26e5face0a77f6ee30b1aca3056cc

for all blessings pray.

Show thyself a Mother,

may the Word divine born for us

thine Infant hear our prayers through thine.

Virgin all excelling,mildest of the mild,

free from guilt preserve us meek and undefiled.

Praise to God the Father, honor to the Son, in the Holy Spirit,

be the glory one. Amen
