Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
Chorus:
Roses for Our Lady,
To wipe away her tears,
Roses for Our Lady,
Whose heart will melt our fears
Our Lady who is with us
Gentle mother of us all,
White [wild?] roses for our lady,
Amid a crown of thorns.

In a land that's so divided,
To a people torn with pain,
Our Mother's plea has promised
That peace will reign again.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Chorus:
Roses for Our Lady,
To wipe away her tears,
Roses for Our Lady,
Whose heart will melt our fears
Our Lady who is with us
Gentle mother of us all,
White [wild?] roses for our lady,
Amid a crown of thorns.

In a land that's so divided,
To a people torn with pain,
Our Mother's plea has promised
That peace will reign again.
