GRACE
(Frank & Sean O'Meara)

As we gather in the chapel here in old Kilmainham Jail
I think about these past few weeks, oh will they say we've failed
From our schooldays they have told us we must yearn for liberty
Yet all I want in this dark place is to have you here with me.

Chorus
Oh Grace just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger
They'll take me out at dawn and I will die
With all my love I place this wedding ring upon your finger
There won't be time to share our love for we must say goodbye.

Now I know it's hard for you my love to ever understand
The love I bear for these brave men, my love for this dear land
But when the Padhraic called me to his side down in the GPO
I had to leave my own sick bed, to him I had to go

Chorus

Now as dawn is breaking, my heart is breaking too,
On this May morn as I walk out my thoughts will be of you
And I'll write some words upon the wall so everyone will know
I love so much that I could see his blood upon the rose.

Chorus

^^


Note: This song was written in 1985 by Frank & Sean O'Meara.

If ever you have a trip to Dublin, visit Kilmainham Jail and do the tour. You'll learn the story of this lovely song. Joseph Plunkett was arrested for taking part in the Easter rising in Dudlin 1916. On May 3rd in the evening he was allowed to marry Grace Gifford in the prison chapel. The couple were then separated. Next morning she was summoned to say goodbye to her husband of a few hours. They spoke for about ten minutes and then Joseph was executed. (shot)

The line that says " I had to leave my own sick bed" refers to the fact that Joseph was suffering from TB at the time.

The last verse mentions the blood upon the rose which was the title of a poem by Joseph which was taught in Irish Schools according to my mother!

The blood upon the rose is a reference to Christ's blood.

Joseph Plunkett was a poet and a scholar. He had a passion for the mystic poets; St Francis, John Donne ... he was passionate, likewise for the cause of Ireland's freedom, and turn out to be an unlikley, and perhaps unsuitable military leader. His acts of bravery and love in the final days of life are commemorated in this most beautiful of songs ... which are taken in part, from his very own verse. Plunkett gave his life for a cause he believed in, and Frank & Sean O'Meara have given the world a gift in this song not so much about Plunkett's acts, as much as his love. The song tells a moving story.

I believe the last verse reference, "And I'll write some words upon the wall so everyone will know" is the author's way to tie Plunkett's own words, to the song. As said in the thread above, it is not uncommon for the "I was here" sort of graffiti to accumulate in prison cells, and as we know, the real Joseph Plunkett penned a poem that in deed left behind his deepest thoughts to share with others ... and that poem expressed the thought that he 'loved so much that he could see His blood upon the rose'

I believe the author pictures Plunkett penning those words on the prison cell walls.

Subject: Lyr Add: THE PLANETS SEVEN (Joseph Mary Plunkett)
From: McGrath of Harlow
Date: 08 Feb 00 - 09:35 PM

Joseph Mary Plunkett. I've got a battered selection of his poems I picked up in a junk shop in Clonmel. It must have been printed fairly soon after he was shot - because it talks of him as being dead, buit never mentions the circumstances of his death. Wartime censorship I imagine.

Anyway, here's a ballad he wrote that's included in the introduction written by his sister Geraldine. I've never seen it anywhere else:

THE PLANETS SEVEN
(Joseph Mary Plunkett)

The planets seven that swing through Heaven
On a golden tether round their Lord the Sun,
Are not so humble, but they sometimes grumble,
That their life is humdrum with but little fun.
Though that shining sickle the moon's not fickle,
Yet she's sometimes mickle and more times less,
But my love, my blessing, would give them a lesson
Both the stars and crescent in graciousness.

There's many a flower in a heavy shower
Would say that its hour of grief was black
And the bearded barley would take it hardly
In the morning early to be cut and stacked;
The silver herring off the coast of Kerry
Is not so merry to meet with death,
But my love, my children, she would beguile them
With her easy smiling while he stopped their breath.

If the stars lack teachers, or ever a preacher
To recall the creatures to the ways of God,
Let them cease to whistle and come and listen
Kneeling like Christians upon the sod;
Then Saint Columba will shake the slumber
Of Death that cumbers their tired eyes
And my love will glance with a look entrancing
And send them dancing to Paradise.

"The flowers of heaven and earth are the same flowers."

From: McGrath of Harlow

Never heard it sung - the only place I've found it is in that introduction by Geraldine Plunkett - it's one of two included there (she reckoned that they would have been "out of place in the text", presumably since it's a song rather than a poem as such)). It was originally published in the National Student, the magazine of the students of the University of Dublin.

The other one included is "The Foot and Mouth", which appears in Colm O Lochlann's Irtish Streets Ballads, with the tune given as "The Groves of Blarney". That would fit to this one as well, since the metre is identical. (I'll post the Foot and Mouth ballad here soon - what with the Mad Cow disease it's got a new kind of topicality.)

And there's a third ballad "better than either of these which follow, that it is perhaps too soon to publish." I think that has to mean it is more directly to do with rebellion. If anyone can point me to it anywhere, I'd love to see it.

OhMyGawd! Some of the things that pop up on Mudcat are downright miraculous!

The first time I heard Grace was in the broadcast of "The Irish Tenors" during a KCTS Channel 9 (PBS) pledge break a couple years ago, sung by Anthony Kearns. I had to have it!. The next time the show came on I videotaped it, but the tape itself was bad. Several months later, during another pledge break, I got a good tape of the program. With other things intruding, I didn't get around to the laborious process of playing the tape and writing down the words, but just a few days ago I decided to go for it an easier way. I tossed my ethics out the window and downloaded Grace sung by Anthony Kearns from Napster. This afternoon I was going to play the cut on the computer and sit here typing the words as Kearns sang it. But I decided to see what was going on at Mudcat first, and there it was! Just saved me a bunch of typing.

I'm not even sure I can do the song for two reasons:
1. After hearing Anthony Kearns' marvelous tenor, I'm not sure I can do the song justice with my frog-in-a-rain-barrel bass; and
2. Every time I hear the song, I puddle up.

Wish me luck. And Thank You Thank You Thank You!!

Just found this thread while looking for information on Frank O'Meara who wrote this wonderful song.

The song was memorably recorded by Jim McCann, formerly of the Dubliners, in 1996, on the album "Grace & Other Irish Love Songs". Brendan Quinn also does a good version on "Melodies & Medleys" from 1991.

Incidentally Steeleye Span recorded a version of Joseph Plunkett's poem "I See his Blood Upon the Rose" on their 2000 album "Bedlam Born" - great vocals from Gay Woods, but I'm not so keen on the arrangement.

Now Rod Stewart has recorded the song Grace on his latest album, so it is about to have a whole new lease of life ...
