Lyrics

“Mary’s Grace”

Words and music by Colleen Bennett

 

Verse 1:

Mary was born the child of Grace,

One of five children of Irish faith.

The war was on and time were hard,

Yet Mary’s smile warmed all their hearts.

 

CHORUS:           

Always so strong

Always of faith

God blessed us all with Mary’s grace J

 

Verse 2:

She married Charles in the month of May,

Now their own family was on its way.

Years of love, happiness and tears,

Kept them together for over 30 years.

 

CHORUS:           

Always so strong

Always of faith

God blessed us all with Mary’s grace J

 

Verse 3:

Happy birthday Mom 75 today!

We’ve gathered here to celebrate.

Family, friends, little Gracie too,

To show you how much we love you!

 

CHORUS:           

Always so strong

Always of faith

God blessed us all with Mary’s grace J

 

Ending:

Amazing grace, how sweet that sound,

Of amazing Marygrace! J
