Happy Easter from The Claiborne House!

Good Friday is upon us, and Resurrection Sunday. Listen for the first time, to the sweet harmonies of my brother-in-law Ger O'Brien with his brother Donal performing live "BRIGHT BLUE ROSE"
A little country church in these Blue Ridge Mountains
Thank you to the Dublin Duo "The O'Brien Brothers" for this beautiful rendition.

Bright Blue Rose
Songwriter: MACCARTHY, JIMMY

I skimmed across black water, without once submerging 
Onto the banks of an urban morning 
That hungers the first light, much much more 
Than mountains ever do. 
And she like a ghost beside me, goes down with the ease of a dolphin 
And emerges unlearned, unshamed, unharmed 
For she is the perfect creature, natural in every feature 
And I am the geek with the alchemists' stone 

Chorus 

For all of you who must discover, 
For all who seek to understand, 
For having left the path of others 
You find a very special hand 

And it is a holy thing, and it is a precious time 
And it is the only way 
Forget-me-nots among the snow, it's always been and so it goes 
To ponder his death and his life eternally 

Chorus 

For all of you who must discover 
For all who seek to understand, 
For having left the path of others 
You find a very special hand 

And it is a holy thing 
And it is the only way 
Forget-me-nots among the snow, it's always been and so it goes 
To ponder his death and his life eternally 

One bright blue rose outlives all those 
Two thousand years and still it goes 
To ponder his death and his life eternally

We hope you find yourself in a church of your choice this Resurrection Sunday. He is risen, indeed.
