A friend of mine is looking for a song for a funeral (tomorrow)

The title is "Hail Glory of St. Patrick, Dear Saint of our Isle"

If anyone knows of this tune and has melody and chords, please email or fax direct to llew_adam@hotmail.com (not a typo on Llew) or fax to 1-604-874-7490

If I remember correctly, that starts:

"Hail glorious Saint Patrick, dear saint of our isle
On us thy poor children, bestow a sweet smile"

I'll start digging. It should be in any good Catholic hymn book from about 40 years ago!

Eureka!

(But don't hold your breath waiting for me to provide music. I can hear this in my head, but I don't know any music).

Hail glorious Saint Patrick, dear saint of our isle,
On us, thy poor children, bestow a sweet smile:
And now thou art high in the mansions above,
On Erin's green valleys look down with thy love.

Hail, glorious Saint Patrick, thy words were once strong
Against Satan's wiles and a heretic throng;
Not less is thy might where in heaven thou art:
Oh, come to our aid, in our battle take part.

In the war against sin, in the fight for the faith,
Dear Saint, may thy children resist unto death:
May their strength be in meekness, in penance, in prayer,
Their banner the cross which they glory to bear.

Thy people, now exiles on many a shore
Shall love and revere thee till time is no more;
And the fire that thou hast kindled shall ever burn bright,
Its warmth undiminished, undying its light.

Ever bless and defend the sweet land of our birth,
Where the shamrock still blooms as when thou wert on earth,
And our hearts shall yet burn, wheresoever we roam,
For God and Saint Patrick, and our native home.

G'day Hrothgar,

(Thread Drift Alert!)
I seem to remember ( ... about 40 years ago!) picking up publications from Pellegrini & Co - only a few 100 metres from where I am working (well, lunching ...) right now ... somewhere on the Town Hall - Haymarket section of George Street ... ?

Regard(les)s,

Bob Bolton
