Ave Maria.

The Manual of Children of Mary - 1930 

Ave Maria! full of grace,
When shall we behold thy face?
See the Star of morning rise,
As in prayer we lift our eyes
To the mansions of the skies,
Thy home, dear Mother, the land of rest.

Ave Maria! when in death
We slowly draw the parting breath,
Be sure, dear Mother, thou art there
With gracious aid and fervent prayer.
Ora Mater, full of grace,
Then shall we behold thy face.  

I opened the window to the gentle rain and said my prayers there.

St. Moritz, Switzerland
