Lyrics for "Ava Maria" Hymn?I love the hymn "Ava Maria". However, I have seen so many different lyrics to this hymn. It is on Wynonna Judd's Christmas album, I believe its the "A Classic Christmas" album. Although I am no country music fan, she sings this hymn (and others) beautifully. She sings "Ava Maria" in Latin. Could anyone tell me where I can find the lyrics, in both English and Latin? Thanks!
