This is a Marian song, suitable for a prayer service or for use during Mass. As a ministry song it's particularly effective, because in between verses you can guide the gathered assembly to bring to mind who is being prayed for. For example before the second verse, you could have the people ask Mother Mary to pray for a group of people, like the unborn, the elderly or victims of a natural disaster. For verses 3 and 4, have the people bring to mind a special person in their lives (him, then her) that need special intercession.

Also if it happens to be the feast day of another Saint, feel free to abridge it. For example, Saint Theresa pray for us, or Saint Alphonsus, pray for us, etc.

This is a lead sheet of course, with the chords written in above the melody. If anyone needs a piano arrangement for this, e-mail me and I'll get one made and posted.

Hail Mary, full of Grace!

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
