The [G]day that we wed, [D7] you[G] blessed us and said[D7]
"May [G7]Heaven bestow you [C]Grace"
[Cm]There in the Holy [G]place
[D7]We shared our first em[G]brace[D7]

Our [G]cottage was small, [D7] but[G] richer than all[D7]
The [G7]palaces of the [C]King
[Cm]All day, the birds would [G]sing
[D7]Our hearts were filled with [G]Spring[D7]
[G]Padr[G7]e, [C]Padre
D7 G D7?
What happened to our love so true
[G]Padr[G7]e, [C]Padre
[D7]In my grief I turn to y[G]ou[D7] [G] [D7]

Then[G], he came along [D7] and [G]sang her his song[D7]
And [G7]won her with honey [C]lies
[Cm]He, of the fiery [G]eyes
[D7]Now, it's my heart that [G]cries[D7]

So, [G]I kneel and pray [D7] the [G]hours away[D7]
And [G7]weary, my heart has [C]grown
[Cm]Wond'ring where love has [G]flown
[D7]Counting my beads a[G]lone[D7]
[G]Padr[G7]e, oh [C]Padre
Plea[D7]se tell me how such things can [G]be
[G]Padr[G7]e, oh [C]Padre
[D7]Pray for my love and [G]me[D7]
[/] [G] [D7] [/] [G] [D7] [/] [G] [D7] [/] [G]
