Now Be Thankful

Now Be Thankful
(Dave Swarbrick & Richard Thompson)

When the stone is grown too cold to kneel
In crystal waters I'll be bound
Coldest stone weary to the sounds upon the wheel

Ch:     Now be thankful for good things below
        Now be thankful to your maker
        For the rose, the red rose blooms for all to know

When the fire is grown too fierce to breathe
In burning irons I'll be bound
Fiercest fire weary to the sound upon the wheel

recorded by Fairport Convention as a Christmas single 1970
Richard Thompson's last recording with the band.
