Saint Teresa Of Avila (Album Version)

Saint Teresa Of Avila (Album Version)

Nanci Griffith

Saint Teresa, your patron childs come home.
Were you there to greet her?
Did your angels know her songs?
And all of her sorrows:
Did you lift them from her brow?
And did you kiss her hand that took her soul back up to you?
Our patron saint of harmony and vow.

Help me in this stillness,
Tell me things I need to know.
How we loved your patron child,
We say, so long, and so long ago.
Saint Teresa, can you speak to me at all?
Ah, from here where will we go, Saint Teresa?

Saint Teresa, she was our sister-of-arms.
Gone now the trio,
To Our Lady, Kate and John.
And fare to fare,
Of the tears that cannot fall.
We send this melody, please help her sing along.
Back up to you, our patron saint of harmony and song.

Help me in this stillness,
Tell me things I need to know.
How we loved your patron child,
We say, so long, and so long ago.
Saint Teresa, can you speak to me at all?
Ah, from here where will we go, Saint Teresa?

Back up to her patron saint and beyond our wood, those lights.
Saint Teresa of Avila, Discalced De Carmelites.

Back up to her patron saint and beyond our wood, those lights.
Saint Teresa of Avila, Discalced De Carmelites.

Saint Cecila to Saint Teresa,
"Your patron child is home."

There are lights beyond our woods.
Saint Teresa of Avila, Discalced De Carmelites.

Lights.
Saint Teresa of Avila, Discalced De Carmelites.

Lights.
Saint Teresa of Avila, Discalced De Carmelites.
