5th Anniversary Mass in the Church of Our Lady, Barnacarroll on Sunday, 14th October  at 9.30am.

We Hold You Close Within Our Hearts

We at beside your bedside,

And watched you fade away;

And though our hearts were breaking,

We knew you could not stay.

What you suffered you told but few,

You did not deserve what you went through,

Tired and weary, you made no fuss,

But tried so hard to stay with us

God saw you getting tired,

When a cure was not to be,

He closed His arms around you,

And whispered “Come with Me”

We hold you close within our hearts,

And there you shall remain,

To walk with us throughout our lives,

Until we meet again,

If memories bring us closer,

We are never far apart,

God has you in his keeping,

We have you in our hearts.
