A Vesper Hymn
by Eggleston

‘ Ave Maria !
The long day hath ended.
Ave Maria !
The ave hath descended,
Give ear to our prayer,
O, Virgin most fair !

Ave Maria
All from us banish,
Ave Maria !
May grief from us
A di to oro
Be to implore !

Ave Maria !
Che hearts that are dreary,
Ave Maria !
Give rest to the weary,
Oh ! grant us the peace,
And bid our chr .

Ave Maria !
Console all the weeping,
Ave Maria !
Keep watching o'er the sleeping !
Mother of Jesus,
Guard us and bless us !
