Hi Everyone, I hope you are all doing well. I am doing good. I decided to post this song on this blog in memory of my mother this Christmas. She always loved the holiday's being with her children and grandchildren. Raised a Catholic in her youth we played this song at her service. When I hear this song it brings her back to me. It is a beautiful song for a beautiful women. I will be updating on Mental Health again this week, I have gotten behind because I am working full time now. But I love to blog, and miss it when I don't, so thanks for continuing to visit my blog, Take Care, Janet.
Ave Maria! Maiden mild!
Listen to a maiden's prayer!
Thou canst hear though from the wild,
Thou canst save amid despair.
Safe may we sleep beneath thy care,
Though banish'd, outcast and reviled -
Maiden! hear a maiden's prayer;
Mother, hear a suppliant child!
Ave Maria! undefiled!
The flinty couch we now must share
Shall seem this down of eider piled,
If thy protection hover there.
The murky cavern's heavy air
Shall breathe of balm if thou hast smiled;
Then, maiden! hear a maiden's prayer;
Mother, list a suppliant child!
Ave Maria! stainless styled!
Foul demons of the earth and air,
From this their wonted haunt exiled,
Shall flee before thy presence fair,
We bow us to our lot of care,
Beneath thy guidance reconciled;
Hear for a maid a maiden's prayer,
And for a father hear a child!
