St Marys of The Angels The Friary Liverpool, Great Homer Street Scotland Road

New Liverpool folk song written by Tony Flanagan about St Mary’s of The Angels. At the end of Great Homer Street, just off Scotland Road stands a beautiful church full of beautiful souls and for one hundred years God had a home at the end of great homer just off Scotland Road. Each Sunday the people in there Sunday clothes would walk hand in hand in there buttons and bows, they would kneel to the floor with there heads gently bowed as Ave Maria was sang by the crowd. At each may procession the children would sing first holy communion, the bells they would ring, one hundred confessions, one hundred sins, one hundred hail Mary’s. You forgave everything for you’ve seen one hundred years of laughter, tears hundreds of heart aches, hundreds of prayers, one hundred white weddings, blessed one hundred gold rings baptised one hundred small babies. As the choir would sing St Mary’s of the angels would you reopen your doors so once again we can pray say a prayer for us all. The heart of a church doesn’t beat in its steeple the real silver and gold is the prayers of its people and the real marble pillars was the strength of the poor. The most beautiful paintings didn’t hang on the wall its the memories painted on the minds of us all as we sat and we prayed knowing god heard loved us all. St Mary’s of the angels would you reopen your doors so once again we can pray say a prayer for us all at the end of great homer, just off Scotland road where for one hundred years god had a home.
