Breaking of the Sword - Loreena McKennitt

Breaking Of The Sword – Loreena McKennitt

On a sunny April morning
My dear son, you were born
Until one day you called away
And from my heart was torn

As a boy you knew the stables
As a lad you knew the fields
My son you worked beside me
But to a country you must yield

You were called to serve the country
You were called to serve the king
And from our home you left one day
And of this today I sing

When I stood there at the station
And our eyes one last time met
It was at that moment my dear son
‘Tis that I’ll never forget

Is it now a mother’s blessing
That the country’s truly free?
You gave your life for all of us
And to all humanity

As I stand here at your grave side
The spring birds sing their song
My child I love you more and more
And will my whole life long

You were called to serve the country
You were called to serve the king
And from our home you left one day
And of this today we sing
