Listen here. This song is sung to the melody of a Catalan Christmas Carol called, “El Noi de la Mare”. See it played on YouTube here. (If you sing along, you will only be able to sing the first two verses, and then the melody changes.)
Hail, Full of Grace
by Father Leonard Feeney
Hail, full of grace, for the Lord He is with thee
Blessed art thou among women of earth;
Blessed the fruit of thy womb, Who is Jesus,
Hail, full of grace, at the hour of His Birth.
Angels, Archangels, and Thrones, and Dominions,
Cherubim, Seraphim, singing your praise.
Mount up to heaven as choirs of adorers,
“Hail, full of grace,” is what each of them says.
Mother of God, Holy Mother, dear Mary,
Pray for us sinners, until our last breath.
Grant us the grace that the prayer we will say is:
“Hail, full of grace,” at the hour of our death.
