a song by k "buck" Daly and K "harry" Harrington
from the county of Mayo so far cross the sea
there came once an angel of mercy
it's my time of dying she eases for me
i am waiting for Jesus to take me.
when just a young lass she walked bare foot on stones
to her home she would carry the water.
now she is near i won't face death alone
by my bed she is gentle as mother.
here black, puerto rican, poor christian and jew
find beauty in her quiet wisdom.
look into her eyes, she'll not give up on you
in her heart we're all one of his children.
1st verse is also the chorus
