From the recording A Tale of Acadie


Sister of Mercy, death is now near
And I have been waiting for so many years
For God's little angel to sing me her song, Your song
So sing to me softly for it won't be long
won't be long...

til I cross that Great Divide
Where I'll wait once again
Til you're by my side

Sister of Mercy, let me kiss your face
Your name gives me peace and you are the grace, The Grace
He ended this story just like you said
Now I'm slowly fading but hopes never dead
Never dead...

Down the waterfall, rainbows collide
And I wait once again
Til you're by my side
By my side
Til the end of time
