Lyrics:  from "Lorelei" a poem by E. Geibel

(Chor)
Horch der A-bend-glo-cke Ton.
A-ve Ma-ri-a.
Im Na-chen kniet der Shif-fer schon.
A-ve Ma-ri-a.
Durch Spaeh-roth hallt es weit und breit
Ge-gruss-est seist du. Rei-ne Maid.
A-ve Ma-ri-a. A-ve Ma-ri-a.
(x2)
-------------------------------
(Solo)
Die du throhnst in wol-ken-glut,
A-ve Ma-ri-a,
Nimm uns-re Liebí in dei-ne Hut,
A-ve Ma-ri-a,
O, lass wie die-ses A-bend-schein
Sie hei-ter und voll Frie-den sein,
Sie hei-ter und voll Frie-den sein,
A-ve, a-ve Ma-ri-a.

(Choir)
Hark the sound of ev'-ning bells!
A-ve Ma-ri-a;
the boat-man in the shal-lop kneels.
A-ve Ma-ri-a.
The sounds throu' glow-ing Heav-ens spread,
to greet thee, ho-ly Vir-gin Maid.
A-ve Ma-ri-a, A-ve Ma-ri-a.
(x2)
------------------------------------
(Solo)
Thou en-throned on clouds a-bove,
A-ve Ma-ri-a.
be thou the guar-dian of our love,
A-ve Ma-ri-a;
and like the ev'-nings glow-ing sky
Let joy and peace a-round it lie,
Let joy and peace a-round it lie!
A-ve, A-ve Ma-ri-a;
