Requiem

This song is by Joan Baez and appears on the album Day After Tomorrow (2008).

This song is a cover of "Requiem" by Eliza Gilkyson.
Mother Mary, full or grace, awaken
All our homes are gone, our loved ones taken
Taken by the sea

Mother Mary calm our fears, have mercy
Drowning in a sea of tears, have mercy
Hear our mournful plea

Our world has been shaken
We wander our homelands forsaken
In the dark night of the soul bring some comfort to us all
Oh, mother Mary come and carry us in your embrace
That our sorrows may be faced

Mary fill the glass to overflowing
Illuminate the path where we are going
Have mercy on us all
In funeral fires burning
Each flame to your mystery returning

In the dark night of the soul
Your shattered dreamers make them whole
Oh, mother Mary find us where we've fallen out of grace
Lead us to a higher place

In the dark night of the soul
Our broken hearts you can make whole,
Oh, mother Mary come and carry us in your embrace
Let us see your gentle face, Mary
