Grace

Frank and Séan O'Meara/Asdee Music,


As we gather in the chapel here in old Kilmainham Jail I think about these past few weeks, oh will they say we've failed? From our school days they have told us we must yearn for liberty Yet all I want in this dark place is to have you here with me

Oh Grace, just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger They'll take me out at dawn and I will die With all my love I place this wedding ring upon your finger There won't be time to share our love, so we must say goodbye

Now I know it's hard for you my love to ever understand The love I bare for these brave men, my love for my dear land So when Pádraic called me to his side down in the GPO I had to leave my own sick bed, to him I had to go

Oh Grace, just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger They'll take me out at dawn and I will die With all my love I'll place this wedding ring upon your finger There won't be time to share our love, so we must say goodbye

Now as the dawn is breaking, my heart is breaking too On this May morn' as I walk out, my thoughts will be with you And I'll write some words upon the wall so everyone will know I loved so much that I could see his blood upon the rose

Oh Grace, just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger They'll take me out at dawn and I will die With all my love I'll place this wedding ring upon your finger There won't be time to share our love, so we must say goodbye Now there won't be time to share our love, so we must say goodbye
