Saint Teresa, your patron child's come home
Were you there to greet her?
Did your angels know her songs and all of her sorrows?
Did you lift them from her brow?
And did you kiss her hand that took her soul back up to you?
Our patron saint of harmony and vow

Help me in this stillness
Tell me things I need to know
How we loved your patron child
We say, so long, so along ago
Saint Teresa, can you speak to me at all?
Ah, from here where will we go? Saint Teresa

Saint Teresa, she was our sister of arms
Gone now the trio to Our Lady, Kate, and John
And fare to fare of tears that cannot fall
We send this melody please help her sing
Back up to our patron saint of harmony and song

Help me in this stillness
Tell me things I need to know
How we loved your patron child
We say, so long, so along ago
Saint Teresa, can you speak to me at all?
Ah, from here where will we go? Saint Teresa

Back up to her patron saint, beyond our wood, those lights
Saint Teresa of Avila Discalced De Carmelites
Back up to her patron saint and beyond our wood, those lights
Saint Teresa of Avila Descalced De Carmelites
Saint Cecilla to Saint Teresa, your patron child is home
(There are lights beyond thy woods)

Saint Teresa of Avila Discalced De Carmelites
(Lights)
Saint Teresa of Avila Discalced De Carmelites
(Lights)
Saint Teresa of Avila Discalced De Carmelites
(Lights)
Saint Teresa
