Ave Maria – Celine Dion

Ave Mariaˆ! 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!

′Ave Maria! undefiled!
The flinty couch we now must share
Shall seem with 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

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!
Ave′ Maria!

 

Storck’s translation used by Schubert

Ave′ Maria! Jungfrau mild,
Erhöre einer Jungfrau Flehen,

Aus diesem Felsen starr und wild
Soll mein Gebet zu dir hin wehen.

Wir schlafen sicher bis zum Morgen,
Ob Menschen noch so grausam sind.

O Jungfrau, sieh der Jungfrau Sorgen,
O Mutter, hör ein bittend Kind!

Ave Maria!

Ave′ Maria! Unbefleckt!
Wenn wir auf diesen Fels hinsinken

Zum Schlaf, und uns dein Schutz bedeckt
Wird weich der harte Fels uns dünken.

Du lächelst, Rosendüfte wehen
In dieser dumpfen Felsenkluft,

O Mutter, höre Kindes Flehen,
O Jungfrau, eine Jungfrau ruft!

Ave Maria!

Ave′ Maria! Reine Magd!
Der Erde und der Luft Dämonen,

Von deines Auges Huld verjagt,
Sie können hier nicht bei uns wohnen,

Wir woll’n uns still dem Schicksal beugen,
Da uns dein heil’ger Trost anweht;

Der Jungfrau wolle hold dich neigen,
Dem Kind, das für den Vater fleht.

Ave Maria′!
