Jodi's Ship

Irish Song Lyrics - Jodi's ShipAuthor: words-Shanna Addington Music-Donal O'Shaughnessy
Copyright: 1998

In memory I stand on the shore each day
and watch Jodi's white ship sail away
From he sheltering shores to the deep deep sea
Clearing the billows and sailing away from me

Out where the ocean meets the sky
out where an unknown mystery lies
I follow her course to the distant blue
there faded our Jodi's ship from view

I know that your ship is out to sea
breasting the billows wild and free
there tenderly spoke an angel thought
and a nessage of peace it to me brought

Tis this mortal mind in dim dismay
watch loved ones pass from our narrow bay
Like ships that go sailing far away
never again to come our way

I know that your ship is out to sea
breasting the billows wild and free
there tenderly spoke an angel thought
and a nessage of peace it to me brought

You loved one is not dead for the life ship sails
for our short sight unseen still fails
and as the weeks and months go by
time will soften the sadness in your eyes

And heal the wound with a kindly touch
and we'll speak of her whom we loved so much
and when this race on Earth is run
with glad hearts we'll say
"Thy Will be Done"

I know that your ship is out to sea
breasting the billows wild and free
there tenderly spoke an angel thought
and a nessage of peace it to me brought
