Ishtar Darlington performs Saint Francis (Gretchen Peters cover)

Listen to my daughter perform this deeply touching song by Gretchen Peters.

St. Francis walking on the water
All his lambs have gone to slaughter
All the creatures who receive his grace
you can see them all
in his haggard face

St Francis begging at your doorway
You want to let him in but what will the neighbours say
You know you can’t go on but you can’t give up
and he answers you
with his begging cup

St Francis sitting at your table
A cup of tea among the faithful
Behind a wall that’s made of little lies
much to your surprise
you start to cry

By these wounds you will be whole again
By these signs you will know
You’ll feel a stirring in your soul again
till sweet amnesia takes a hold

Saint Francis sleeping in the meadow
His halo is a raven’s shadow
He’s been sleeping for 800 years
In a potter’s field
Full of sparrow’s tears
And while we sleep and dream of heaven’s gates
down here on earth
the old man waits

What do you think?

  1. How can you watch that without crying. It makes me cry. I tried to up vote this, but I already had. When you do that it goes over to a down vote. So when you see the down vote know it was a mistake. I am so sorry. I love her aura, and you can see it so well in this video. Love the smile at the end. This is for you for sure.
