Video transcript

This is Ampleforth Abbey high in the hills of Yorkshire, where on June the 6th, 1983, my attitude to life changed completely and this is how it all started:

I looked into the mirror Piercing the gloom The misery I saw there Was reflected on the room

How could I be that lazy? Was this woman really me? They'd say that I was crazy It's schizophrenia see

Praise God those days are over And the pain of guilt is gone For a weight is off my shoulder And I can carry on

Lone parent with six children Sofa of rat grey fur I couldn't face the morning Couldn't go down the stairs

Suddenly there a was fire We had to get outside The flames were growing higher When a neighbour took the child

Policemen came then firemen Who threw the sofa out When in came my neighbour With a new and wonderful couch

Christmas soon was on us With a sparkly Christmas tree I will never forget my neighbour And the beautiful red settee

Now I can do the dishes And clean the kitchen bin I can wash the windows To let the sunshine in

For I am at peace Even though I know Like waves upon the ocean Troubles come and go

I found God's love and peace At the abbey of Ampleforth And people find it still At their local Alpha course

Born in 1932, of kindly parents, I always had negative views of life, till at the age of forty I had a complete breakdown. At my first visit to Ampleforth on the 6th of June, '83, three parishioners prayed with me. Next morning I wanted to dance with joy for my symptoms had completely left me and I felt as if I had come out of the dark, damp pit into the glorious sunshine and these now are my golden years.
