Song Lyrics of Soeur Sourire, The Singing Nun
Dominique In the Key of G
Chorus Dominique, nique nique over the land he plods along and sings a little song Never asking for reward He just talks about the Lord He just talks about the Lord At a time when Johnny Lackland over England was the King, Dominique was in the backland, fighting sin like anything Chorus Now a heretic, one day Among the thorns forced him to crawl Dominiqu' with just one prayer, Made hi hear the good Lord's call (To Chorus) Without horse or fancy wagon, He crossed Europe up and down Poverty was his companion, As he walked from town to town Chorus To bring back the straying liars and the lost sheep to the fold He brought forth the Preaching Friars, Heaven's soldiers, brave and bold Chorus One day in the budding order, There was nothing left to eat, Suddenly two angels walked in With a load of bread and meat Chorus Dominique once in his slumber Saw the Virgin's coat unfurled Over friars without number Preaching all around the world Chorus Grant us now oh Dominique The grace of love and simple mirth That we all may help to quicken Godly life and truth on earth Chorus
I Would Like to Be Je Voudrais Key of Dm
I'd like to be just like the wind, singing everywhere I'd like to be just like the wind dancing everywhere Like the wind that praises the Lord Like the wind I'd like to be like the white cloud, Fluffy in the sky I'd like to be like the white cloud In the sun Like the cloud that seaches for the Lord Facing You.... I'd like to be like the flame from a wood fire I'd like to be like the flame from a wood fire Just like the flame that rises, Lord Dancing for You I'd like to be like a guitar A singing heart I'd like to be like a quitar A vibrant heart Like a guitar that You fill with the strength Of Your song
All the Roads Tout Les Chemins Key of A
Every road through hills and valleys Leads to heaven by and by And the wind that swepps the alleys Points a finger to the sky Chorus: A song on my lips, a song in my heart I go my merry way The sun in my eyes, The sun in my heart, Lights up my step day to day Many friends are on the highway, And they're waiting for a smile Walk along my friend on my way Holding hands a little while Chorus There are times of storm and sorrow When the goal drifts out of sight But the road leads on tomorrow To the land of peace and light Chorus Then we'll all be reunited Singing one eternal chord For we know we've been invited To the mansion of the Lord Chorus
Put On Your Pretty Skirt Mets Ton Joli Jupon Key of A
Chorus Put on your pretty skirt my soul We have a date, we have a date Put on your pretty skirt my soul The Lord you love is waiting for you In the early morning hours When the dew is on the rose A small gift of Your love And I am satisfied! Chorus When noon is full of wonder It's a joy to be alive I feel golden in the sun of a friendship close and warm Chorus Among the twilight stars When You are all around You make me fall asleep In the peace of your arms.

Sister Adele Soeur Adele Key of D .
Chorus La, la , la, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la, la, la La, la, la. la, la, la, la, La, la, la, la, la, la. la. Here is my guitar from Barcelona Full of the soul of ancient Spain Born of a tree in Catalonia And of that mainly rainy plain You'll like her form, gracious and slender The sunny color of her skin. You'll love her voice, mellow and tender Her fiery beat will make you spin Chorus I well remember when I met her Hung in a showcase upside down Right then and there I had to get her From that old shop in Brussels town Adios Espania and seguidillas Adios toreros full of flame No more sombreros and mantillas Sister Adele shall be her name Chorus One shiny day I heard God's calling Oh yes, my Lord if You say so! I packed my bags without much stalling Took my quitar and said, Let's go! Ever since then through every weather Sister Adele stays at my side Day in, day out, we sing together Praising the Lord far and wide. Chorus Sister Adele is never lonely She helps me keep my hope up high God is her love, her one and only I know he voice can reach the sky Someday up there God be willing I'll be a guest in the great hall. And for the dance won't it be thrilling Sister Adele will lead the ball! Chorus
The Seagulls Les Mouettes
The seagulls , two by two Are going in a row To take a dip In the blue, blue sea Mister Gull is fishing for eel And missus Gull is roasting In the noontime sun Grandpa Gull on tip toes Feet in the water and pants upturned relives his younger years. Jean-Francois and Jean-Oouis are riding their amphibian boat And shout their joy at the top of their lungs On His balcony in the skies God leans down and smiles At the happiness of His children
With You I shall go all the days of my life On the roads of all the world With You I shall go all the days of my life With my brothers through out the world You reached out Your hand And my footsteps are in Your steps I'll follow You, Oh Lord What ever the road may be With You I shall go all the days of my life On the roads of all the world With You I'll serve all the days of my life All my brothers in all the world With You I'll serve all the days of my life All my brothers in all the world And I'll go to those Toward whom You lead me To sing, oh Lord Of Your love and Your joy With you I'll serve all the days of my life On the roads of the all the world With I shall go until the end of my life With my brothers throughout the world Just like You I want to give myself To lose and use myself for the greatness of my God Of Your kingdom of friendship With You I shall go till the end of my life On the roads of all the world With you I'll go all the days of my life On the roads of all the world With You I shall go all the days of my life On the roads of Eternity At the gate of Paradise You'll be expecting my life In Your hands oh my God I shall give up my soul With You I shall go all the days of my life On the roads of Eternity.

Little Pierrot Petit Pierrot
Little Pierrot goes his way lightheartedly And gathers little daises Spring is laughing in his curly hair And gives him a festive look The golden poplars stretch to the sky They are searching for the sun La, la, la The meadows and the orchards All jump for joy La, la, la The happiness of the Lord Sings in the world And the flowers in the in fields La, la, la A little pink cloud In the setting sun Slowly falls asleep La, la, la
My Little Inspiration Ma Petite Muse
My little inspiration is You oh Lord Your happiness melts in my heart My little inspiration is You oh Lord You fill me with happiness The meadows all offer me a thousand flowers All the Clairs de Lunes have heart shaped lips The city streets all smile at the sun All of man's joys are the color of heaven The stars all wink their eyes at me The rainy days have all stopped mourning All the evenings fall asleep to the lullaby of the birches All the mornings drink of Your May wine.
Like an autumn leaf that is drifitng Throught a chilly November day I was restless and drifting Never happy,never gay Chorus Hallelujah, for Your grace has saved me For Your love dear Lord in my heart For the happiness You gave me Hallelujah for the wind that sings in the mountain For the sunshine that lights up the sky For the water in the fountain, Hallelujah! I walked in sadness and my song was troubled I walked in sadness Seeking peace and happiness everywhere Chorus By chanced in my adventures One evening God I have found To Him I give my solitude And His friendshiop saved me Chorus
