about

Based on a prayer of St. Brigid of Ireland (c. 6th Century)

lyrics

Chorus
I'll raise my glass in highest honor
Of the man who turned the water into wine
For he taught us how to live a little better
And I'd like to drink with him for all of time


Oh, I'd like to have the men of Heaven
In my house with all my kith and kin
And I'd like to have brimming vats of good cheer
Laid out and tapped, to welcome all of them

Chorus

Oh, I'd like to have the three Marys join us
To celebrate their great and glorious fame
And I'd like to have folk from every corner of Heaven
To come and help us celebrate the same

Chorus

Oh, I'd like them to be cheerful in their drinking
As we laugh and share our stories, games and songs
And I'd like to have Jesus, too, amongst them
So we can drink with our great King the whole night long

Chorus

Oh, I'd like to have a great lake of beer
For the King of Kings and Lord of Lords' good pleasure
And I'd like to watch Heaven’s family drink it through eternity
And enjoy with them that feast beyond all measure

Chorus
