Jason Gray - Ave Maria (A Song For Mary) Lyrics

She picks the flowers in the morning
Tucks just a few in her hair
The joy of her mother and father
As she spins around unaware

She carries her song into evening
And the dreams of all little girls
She carries the bread to the table
She carries the hope of the world

Ave Maria
Ave Maria

Angels can carry glad tidings
Or burdens to bear in the dark
Love can take both fear and wonder
And hold them inside the same heart

You carried hope and a promise
You carried shame and disgrace
Which was the heavier burden
That drew lines in a little girl’s face?

Ave Maria
Gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Ave, ave dominus
Dominus tecum
Benedicta tu in mulieribus
Et benedictus
Et benedictus fructus ventris
Ventris tuae, Jesus

Held by the love you were holding
Is this what it means to be blessed?
To carry your hope through the darkness
As it carries you into your rest

Ave Maria
Ave Maria

    (continued) you can thank the Catholic Church for that belief which is accepted by every Christian denomination in the world

  2. Maria Petrarca

    @Sharon BabySaver I visited the website and I would just like to say that the what makes the Church different than every other Christian denomination is that not everything we believe is in the Bible we believe in a Magisterium which flawlessly passes down doctrines throughout the centuries (biblical or not) A great example of this is the belief in the Trinity. The bible does not ONCE use the word Trinity or explicitly say the that God is 3 Persons one God

    You should visit Mike Gendron's Website Proclaiming the Gospel dot com.

  4. Maria Petrarca

    This just great! (especially to me as I am a Catholic)

  5. Rebecca Lee Young Rodriguez Prentice

    I am addicted to your voice. Loved this song for decades and you made it so clear to this American woman who has always wanted to hear it interpreted into standard American English ! Love love love it!!!!!
