The Parting Glass

I first heard this song sung by Beth on The Walking Dead. I think that was the very beginning of season three when they got to the prison, back when I thought The Walking Dead was still one of the best TV shows ever made (I am starting to reconsider that opinion). 

Then, at church, back when I still went to the UU church semi-regularly, one of the ladies there sang this song at a music night that we went to and it was one of the most beautiful things I had ever heard - again. 

Turns out I just love this song no matter who sings it, but this version is especially beautiful.

But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I’ll gently rise and I’ll softly call
Good night and joy be with you all
