Notre Dame Folk Choir

A BIG thank you to everyone who helped and took part in our exciting and joyful celebrations with the University of Notre Dame Folk Choir. We were delighted to welcome the choir, led by Steve Warner, and Friends of Notre Dame to Harold’s Cross for a lively and vibrant few days. Special thanks to our host families, who made the students feel so at home.
Well done to our House of Brigid Fellows Geoff, Rikki and Susanna for organising the event.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
.
Yesterday’s dead,
Tomorrow’s unborn,
So there’s nothing to fear
And nothing to mourn.
For all that is past
And all that has been
Can never return
To be lived once again.
And what lies ahead
Or the things that will be
Are still in God’s hands
So it is not up to me
To live in the future
That is God’s great unknown,
For the past and the present
God claims for His own.
So all I need do
Is to live for Today
And trust God to show me
The truth and the way.
For it’s only the memory
Of things that have been
And expecting tomorrow
To bring trouble again
That fills my today,
Which God wants to bless,
With uncertain fears
And borrowed distress.
For all I need live for
Is this one little minute,
For life’s here and now
And eternity’s in it.
.
