Latin: AVE MARIA STELLA

OCEAN STAR, WE GREET YOU


1 Ocean star, we greet you;
Maid of fame immortal,
God's beloved Mother,
Heaven's joyous portal.
2 Even as the angel
Used the name of Eva,
Changing it to Ave,
Greet us, make us peaceful.
3 Break our chains forever;
Banish ev'ry sadness;
Be our light to guide us;
Be our ev'ry gladness.
4 Be our intercessor;
Show yourself a mother:
Jesus came to save us
Through you and no other.
5 Praise to God the Father,
To the Son forever,
And the Holy Spirit,
Three in One together.
