O Danny Boy

Words by Frederick E. Weatherly

Music is "Londonderry Aire"

He Looked Beyond My Fault

Words 1st verse & chorus by Dottie Rambo
2nd verse by Jennifer M. Seest (1993)
Music is "Londonderry Aire"


I am including the words to both the secular and sacred versions of this beautiful olde folk song as they are both special to us...I married a "Danny Boy", and he is always going (to sea!) while I must "bide" *_*

O Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side.
The summer's gone and all the roses falling;
It's you, it's you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow,
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow.
I'll still be there in sunshine or in shadow;
O Danny Boy, O Danny Boy, I love you so!

My Danny Boy *_*

Amazing Grace, shall always be my song of praise.
For it was grace that bought my liberty.
I do not know just why He came to love me so;
He looked beyond my fault and saw my need.

I shall forever lift my eyes to Calvary,
To view the cross where Jesus died for me.
How marvelous the grace that caught my falling soul;
He looked beyond my fault and saw my need.

Amazing grace, with joyful heart I sing of it;
For by Your grace, You set my poor heart free!
And all my days, I'll never cease to sing Your praise,
For all the glory, LORD, belongs to Thee!
