Thread Name: Irish Songs for Funeral
Subject: RE: Irish Songs for Funeral
I wrote this song basing the chorus on a Celtic blessing - it has been sung at funerals, christenings, confirmations, a leaving party and a 21st so far...send me a PM if you want to use it, and I'll send you the music, or you can hear it if you go to the Craig Morgan Robson website www.CMR-harmony.org.uk
Whatever you sing, I'm sure it will go well - anything sincerely meant is usually accepted as just that on such occasions I've found...
Best wishes
Sarah

KEEP YOU IN PEACE
Sarah Morgan 1992

Chorus
Warm be the sun that shines upon you
Soft be the winds as they breathe on you
Smooth be the roads that rise before you
Keep you in peace till we meet again.

May you have shelter in storm to hide you,
May you have stars in the night to guide you
May you have ever a friend beside you,
Keep you in peace till we meet again.

Warm be the sun that shines upon you
Soft be the winds as they breathe on you
Smooth be the roads that rise before you
Keep you in peace till we meet again.

May you not lack for good bread to feed you,
May you not lack for good hope to speed you,
And for your singing, a heart to heed you,
Keep you in peace till we meet again.

Warm be the sun that shines upon you
Soft be the winds as they breathe on you
Smooth be the roads that rise before you
Keep you in peace till we meet again.
Keep you in peace till we meet again.
