Sing of a Girl in the Ripening Wheat

This folk-style Marian-focussed Advent hymn was written by Damian Lundy FSC.

It is set to the traditional English melody used for Scarborough Fair.

The lyrics cannot be given here because they are copyright.   But the tune is not - therefore you may be able to use the attached file as the basis for making a lead sheet, if your parish / school has a copyright license that allows reproducing the lyrics.

It was published in Songs of the Spirit Volume 1, which is now out of print but may be available second hand.




1  Sing of a girl in the ripening wheat ...
2 ... angels surround ...
3 ... hillside alone ...
4 ... new man will meet ..
5 ... circle of love ...
6 ... never grow old ...

(Lyrics are copyright and cannot be re-produced here.  There are six verses, and no chorus.)
