TO JESUS, THRU MARY

Words & Music by Edgar Villavert Combong. Copyright 2009

As I journey through life
Climbing its mountains and hills
Or, sail the seas, touch the skies
Living life for a while
Like an eagle I will fly
God’s grace will raise me high

Chorus:
To Jesus, thru Mary
God grants His grace thru thee, My Lady
To Jesus, thru Mary
My dearest mother intercede for me
Please pray for me

In times of crises and tests
When things are not at their best
When there’s no sunshine but rain
And my heart’s filled with fear (pain)
Yes, your sweet love will prevail
You will ask Emmanuel

Chorus:
To Jesus, thru Mary
God grants His grace thru thee, My Lady
To Jesus, thru Mary
My dearest mother intercede for me
Please pray for me

Chorus & Finale:
To Jesus, thru Mary
God grants His grace thru thee, My Lady
To Jesus, thru Mary
My dearest mother intercede for me
Please pray for me
Please pray for me
Please pray for me

Thanks, Edgar. My pianist and I are going to present this song at St. Mary's Church (St. Paul, MN) sometime in the near future. I'll send you a recording.

Thanks a lot, Richard!  You are such a blessing! I'm looking forward to receive a recording of the song. God bless.

I forgot to mention...

I forgot to mention that your comment was being held for moderation. I just noticed it and approved it today. I was supposed to receive notice of comments requiring approval but something must not be set right in the admin area. Learning as I go along. I am going to attend three days of Drupal Camp this week, so hopefully I can sharpen my Drupal admin skills.
