Ave Maria, empty of storm.
Magnificat-singer of the poor and fearful,
you are with Puerto Rico.
Blessed are your children
who truly care for those without water,
and blessed are those who give
fruit, bread, gasoline, a road cleared.
Jesus, Savior of the frightened,
Maria, Mother for God,
pray for those who need help,
and for us sinners
who have not yet found a way to bring help
now and in the hour of their hope.
