Movement V - Wedding - 'Father, Hear Our Humble Voices' (Preacher)

Paul McCartney

SHANTY
I know
I should be glad of this
For to be thankful is
To know.

I hope
That you will still be here,
The time is drawing near
For us to know.

MARY DEE (no longer as a ghost)
I'll always be here
As long as you've got time for me.
Whether it's joy or sadness,
It doesn't matter -
As long as you have time for me,
We will be together.

SHANTY
I know
That to be thankful is
Not what I need, but just for right now
It's all I've got.
I know that patience is a virtue.
But at this time in my life
I need something more.

Something in the air
Is slowly drawing us together.

MARY DEE
Sit tight,
Be brave,
And believe in something more.

SHANTY
If I could sit still,
It I could be courageous.
I have a feeling that there's something
Drawing us inevitably towards it.

MARY DEE
If you have patience,
You needn't wait for ever.
This is the story that they tell the children
Who are always asking the question.

SHANTY
I know
Someone is making sense.

MARY DEE
We have a common sense.
(Ah)

SHANTY and CHORUS
(Ah)

BOYS
Father, hear our humble voices,
We will praise Thee all our days.
Cleanse our sins, release our minds.
We will be together.

PREACHER and WOMEN'S CHORUS
Lord, deliver Thy salvation
Unto those that bless Thy name.

FULL CHORUS
Let them live in harmony,

SOLO QUARTET
With Thy Holy Spirit.

CHORUS
Hosanna, Hosanna.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

MARY DEE and SHANTY
God in heaven, save Thy thunder
For the enemies of love.
Bathe us in Thy holy light.
We will live together.

CHORUS
Amen.
