THAT GRIEF PASSED AWAY: SO MAY THIS Sung by Mary Cole
Lyrics
THAT GRIEF PASSED AWAY: SO MAY THIS
( Inspired by Deor the Bard and Wulf ond Eadwacer )

Written by Mary Cole and Greg Garrett

Verse 1
Long time ago / In an ancient tongue,
Eadwacer called out / Her man_ had gone.
"Wulf, min Wulf!" she cried. / "Wulf! My Wulf!
Why did you have to go away?


Out of the mist came a comforting refrain.
Deor the Bard sang of vict'ry over pain.
He sang:

Chorus

Once I was in anguish: / now all the pain is gone.
Troubles may torment you / -but you have to move on!
That grief passed away / and so may this.
Just as THAT GRIEF PASSED AWAY: /
SO MAY THIS, / SO MAY THIS,
SO MAY THIS, / SO MAY THIS.

Verse 2

Death stole by my house / He brought me grief.
He snatched you from me / There was no relief! Ooo!
Why, O, Why? I cried. / Why, O, Why?
Why did you have to go away?

Out of the mist came a comforting refrain.
Deor the Bard sang of vict'ry over pain.
He sang:

Chorus

Once I was in anguish: / now all the pain is gone.
Troubles may torment you / -but you have to move on!
That grief passed away / and so may this.
Just as THAT GRIEF PASSED AWAY: /
SO MAY THIS, / SO MAY THIS,
SO MAY THIS, / SO MAY THIS.

Saxophone Bridge

Repeat Chorus and out.

This song gives hope that just as grief has passed during previous times of trouble, so grief will pass away now.

Mary has always been inspired to carry on through rough times by the words of the ancient English Bard, Deor. The words of the poem "Wulf ond Eadwacer" have always haunted her too. This is a remix and re-write of the song that we wrote, entitled "The Bard's Blues".
