    REQUIEM
    (Eliza Gilkyson)

    Mother Mary, full of 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
