Celine Dion Ave Maria Lyrics

Last updated: 01/02/2011 10:00:00 AM

Ave maria
Maiden mild!
Oh, listen to a maiden’s prayer
For thou canst hear amid the wild
’this thou, ’this thou canst save amid despair
We slumber safely till the morrow
Though we’ve by man outcast reviled
Oh, maiden, see a maiden’s sorrow
Oh, mother, hear a suppliant child!
Ave maria
Ave maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Ave, ave dominus
Dominus tecum
The murky cavern’s air so heavy
Shall breathe of balm if thou hast smiled
Oh, maiden, hear a maiden pleadin’
Oh, mother, hear a suppliant child
Ave maria
Ave maria

Since the relase of the song some years back, i could not pass my comments for a lot of reasons, but now when ever i work up early morning around 2 or 3am doing my prayers, the moment i hear the echoes of the song, i findv myself in a place in cannot describe.This song to me is the best she has ever done when it comes to gospel. Its so touching, prayerful.I passed my comment today because i played the song early morning of January 1 2011 and what i felt left a lot to be commented.I love Celine. I still feel this version of the song was supposed to be part of the sound tracks for the passion of the christ movie together with the verion by Dolores O'Riordan which already featured.



Why change the prayer? | Reviewer: W. M. Vasquez | 12/20/09

Why would you change the song which is a classic? Also, the latin is the translated Hail Mary, so are you changing the prayer too? This was changed only to sell more copies. Two versions which are the best are by Mario Lanza (good luck trying to find it) and Perry Como's version which I found at Kroger in 2009 for only $2.00 on a christmas disc of many old christmas songs. Try it, it is so pure and great...Don't mess with what is perfect.



Glorious . . . | Reviewer: Rose | 12/30/08

Queen Celine's delivery of this piece is nothing short of heavenly, as is her exquisite delivery of everything she sings. I "drove all weekend" recently to see her in concert, a dream realized. Celine's talent is a gift to the world, and when she sings Ave Maria it almost brings one to their knees it's so glorious. Because I also love to sing, I follow Celine's rendition of just about everything. Long live her voice, and long live mine so I can keep on imitating from the best.



Wonderful rendition of the original lyrics | Reviewer: Wolf Carnahan | 11/6/08

The Ave Maria has been known as a sacred song for so long that most people don't know that the original lyrics were taken from Walter Scott's "Lady of the Lake" and sung in German, not Latin.

Ms. Dion has done a trememendous work in combining original lyrics with the Latin "Hail Mary".

Ms Dion, I salute you.

Why Change A Classic? | Reviewer: Judy | 7/19/08

There is no doubt that Celine Dion's voice is exceptionally beautiful and unique. But the Ave Maria, the Hail Mary, a centuries old traditional prayer in the Catholic Church, why add to these words? These additional lyrics make no sense to me. They have nothing to do with the original prayer of the Church - the first part taken from Luke's Gospel, and the second part asking Our Blessed Mother to pray for us. I agree with the reviewer who describes this poor imitation as crap.



Quirky Chick/Unbelievable Voice in this Genre | Reviewer: JMD | 5/15/08

I hate to say it but I have been ruined forever listening to the nice lady at church singing this song. I NEVER listen to Celine; yet, you'll find in her rendition of this song why some call her a DIVA. The power, fluctuation, and range of her voice is astonishing.



WONDERFUL | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/1/08

Its just the best she has ever done ....I love Celine....she has a special place in my heart.....so glad she back with her new cds.....love you lots Celine..



Absolutely beautiful | Reviewer: Eve Shelby | 8/11/07

Among my favourite music Schubert's Ave Maria has always shared top honours along with Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony and a few Bocelli, Brightman and Iglesias tunes. My mom has one of the purest soprano voices I've ever heard. My dream was to have a recording of her singing it. She never got the chance to record it and is now 85 with failing health and no longer has the breath control needed so I will never realize that dream. Celine's version is the closest I've yet heard to the way my mom sang it. Thank you Celine.



i sang | Reviewer: Elena | 8/9/07

I've sung Ave Maria at so many funerals. But i talked to a couple and they want me to sing it at their wedding, referring of course to this version. Still, it's odd.



totaly Awsome | Reviewer: Morgan Adams | 7/10/07

I love that song so much and Celine Dione is the best female singer in the world

I love you Celine Dion
Thank you so much
God Bless you!
