The most beautiful rendition of this song ever, from River of Dreams, The Very Best of Hayley Westenra, on all versions of this album.
Lyrics and Translation:
Ave Maria, gratia plena
Benedicta tu in mulieribus
Et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.
Sancta Maria, Sancta Maria, Maria.
Ora pro nobis peccatoribus
Nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae.
Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with you,
Blessed are you among women,
And blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death.
Adapted from the First Prelude of J.S. Bach
by Charles Gounod
