Thanksgiving (Francesca)

Uploaded .

This was written for my mother, Frances Lisney who died on 1/04/08. She was a saintly woman. The guitar is in a full D tuning.


Though it was the right time
We feel so alone
How the tears are burning
Our Lord has called you home
How blessed are we to be called your children
How blessed is he to be called your husband
How blessed are we, all those who love you.

Your love has touched so many
How gentle were your ways
Your innocence endearing
Your wisdom, the Son’s rays
We lift you up, our precious gift, Francesca
With grateful hearts, we return you to our Father
Guardian Angel, Thomas, carry our dear one to Heaven

1/5/08 to 1/6/08
