Music
Qu'il Fait Bon Vivre
Ma Mere Chantait Toujours

Refrain A
Ma mère chantait toujours, la, la, la,
Une vieille chanson d'amour, que je to chante à mon tour,
Ma fille, to grandiras, et puis to t'en iras,
Mais un beau jour, to to souviendras à ton tour 
De cette chanson là.

Refrain B
Ma mère chantait toujours, la, la, la, la,
Une vieille chanson d'amour, que je to chante à mon tour,
Ma fille to grandiras, et puffs to t'en iras,
Mais un beau jour, to la chanteras à ton tour, 
En souvenir de moi, en souvenir de moi.

The Church of the Larger Fellowship (CLF), Unitarian Universalist, is a church without walls serving isolated religious liberals. We create community with our parishioners through the mail, on the phone and in cyberspace and we support small congregations.

Our chalice is loaned to us today by Nancy Warren Oliver of UniUniques. Please visit the UniUniques booth in the exhibit hall. Thanks go as well to our ushers, service participants, and the children and adults of La Troupe V'la l'Bon Vent, especially their director, Dianne Lapierre.

Please visit the Church of the Larger Fellowship booth in the exhibit hall for information about our publications (Quest and uu&me) and membership. CLF's classic jewelry, UU themed order of service covers are available there as well.

Created by the Church of the Larger Fellowship, Our Unitarian Universalist church by mail and cyberspace (1-800-231-3027). The CLF welcomes you.
