As I Kneel Before You

  • As I kneel before you,
  • As I bow my head in prayer,
  • Take this day, make it yours,
  • And fill me with your love.
  • Refrain
  • Ave Maria,
  • Gratia plena,
  • Dominus tecum,
  • Benedicta tu.
  • All I have I give you,
  • Every dream and wish are yours,
  • Mother of Christ, Mother of mine,
  • Present them to my Lord.
  • Refrain
  • As I kneel before you,
  • And I see your smiling face,
  • Every thought, Every word,
  • Is lost in your embrace.
  • Refrain (2)
