It's often sung with a key change between the 2nd and 3rd verses.
LyricsAve Maria, Ave Maria The heavens were opened
Our Lady appeared at Fatima one day
To tell us again of the great need for prayer
As Her children we answer this way.
Dear Lady of Fatima,
We come on bended knee,
To beg Your intercession,
For peace and unity.
Dear Mary, won't You show us,
The right and shining way,
We pledge our love and offer You,
A Rosary each day.
You promised at Fatima,
Each time that You appeared,
To help us if we pray to You,
To banish war and fear.
Dear Lady, on First Saturdays,
We ask Your guiding hand,
For grace and guidance here on earth,
And protection for our land.
