WATCH: Elvis Presley sings the "Hail Mary"

Tomasz Reczko - published on 11/18/16

We all know the popular hits of the King of Rock and Roll, but have you ever heard how he sings a prayer to Mary?

In this recording, Elvis Presley performs the song “Miracle of the Rosary.” The lyrics read like this:

O Blessed Mother, we pray to thee Thanks for the miracle of your rosary Only you can hold back Your Holy Son’s hand Long enough for the whole world to understand

After this part, Elvis sings the “Hail Mary” (at about 0:35 min), and ends with:

And thanks once again For the miracle of your rosary.
