Little Flower of Jesus saint of our own day
Lovingly we come to you to learn your little way.
Dear St. Therese do not turn away
Drop down just one little rose
The rose we need today

Now you open your heaven in doing good on earth
Dear St. Therese .............

Now you scatter rose with leaves of grace
These of the child Jesus and the holy face
Dear St. Therese ............

You refused God nothing, loved to do His will
Now He grants your every prayer and He will grant it still.
Dear St. Therese ..........

So I turn towards you to follow, my God.
In simplicity, charity follow (2)
In simplicity, honesty I follow (2)
In simplicity, fidelity I follow (2)


Give me oil in my Lamp

Give me love in my heart
Keep me serving (3)
Give me faith in my heart

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases
His mercies never come to an end
They are new every morning, new every morning

Great is you faithfulness O Lord,
Great is your faithfulness.
The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul that seeks Him,
It is good that we should wait quietly
For the salvation of the world.

To trample underfoot a prisoner,
To deny a human right,
To employ injustice in a court of law;
Such things the Lord does not approve.


The heavens are telling the glory of God
And all creation is shouting for joy,
Come, dance in the forest, come, play in the field,
And sing, sing, sing to the glory of the Lord.

Sing to the Sun, the bringer of day
He carries the light of the Lord in his rays,
The moon and the stars who light up the way
Unto your throne.

Praise to the wind that blows through the trees,
The sea's mighty storms, the gentlest breeze,
They blow where they will, they blow where they please,
To please the Lord.

Praise to the rain, that waters our fields
And blesses our crop, so all the earth yields,
From death unto life her mystery concealed
Spring forth in joy.

Sing to earth, who makes life to grow,
The creatures you made to let your life show,
The flowers and trees that help us to know,
The heart of love.


Lord we pray for golden peace,
Peace all over the land,
Let us dwell in liberty,
Walking hand in hand.

Banish fear and ignorance, hunger, thirst and pain,
Banish hate and poverty, let no one live in vain.
Keep us all forever one, one in love and grace,

Wipe away all war and strife, give freedom to each race.
Let your justice reign supreme and righteousness be done,
Let goodness rule the hearts of all, evil be overcome.


Listen, let your heart keep seeking
Listen to his constant speaking
Listen to the Spirit calling you,
Listen to his inspiration.
Listen to his invitation,
Listen to the spirit calling you.

He's in the sound of the thunder,
In the whisper of the breeze,
He's in the might of the whirlwind
In the roaring of the seas.
He's in the laughter of children,
In the patter of the rain,

Hear Him in the cries of the suffering
In their moaning and their pain.


I place My Hand in Your Hand and joyously
I walk along with you, O Lord. (2)

You call me friend, no longer slave;
Your loving self for me you gave,
And all mankind you came to save;
So I'll follow you

Discord, with, Lord, has no part,
I must be one in mind and heart,
With all my neighbours close and far,
So I'll bring them too.


Ref: This is my prayer to thee, my Lord:
Strike, strike at the root of penury in my heart.
1. Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows
2. Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service.
3. Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend
          my knees before insolent might.
4. Give me the strength to raise my mind high
           above daily trifles.
5. Give me the strength to surrender my strength
          to thy will with love.


Ref: Let thy love play upon my voice and rest on my silence.
1. Let it pass through my heart into all my movements.
2. Let thy love like stars shine in the darkness of my sleep.
And dawn in my awakening.
3. Let it burn in the flame of my desires
And flow in all currents of my own love.
4. Let me carry thy love in my life as a harp does its music
And give it back to thee at last with my life.


To follow the Lord and find freedom,
To love as He loved and bring peace,
To spend our lifetime for his Kingdom,
To want it to grow and increase.

To search for the Truth never ceasing,
To look for a star in the night,
To knock at the door never tiring,
To wait eagerly for his light.

To walk hand in hand with each other,
To share with the burdened their pain,
To comfort the people who suffer,
To help those in need, for no gain.

To sense how oppressed are the poorest,
To struggle for justice and right,
To stand for the truth and be honest,
To die to oneself in the fight.


Glory and praise to our God;
Who alone gives light to our days;
Many are the blessings he bears
To those who trust in his ways.

We, the daughters and sons of Him,
Who built the valleys and plains,
Praise the wonders our God has done
In every heart that signs.

In his wisdom he strengthens us,
Like gold that's tested in fire.
Though the power of sin prevails,
Our God is there to save.

Every moment of every day,
Our God is waiting to save,
Always ready to seek the lost,
To answer those who pray.

2. Lead Kindly Light

Lead me kindly light of God
I'm going to let it shine (2)
All the time let it shine.

          Not to hide but to burn
          I'm going to let it shine (2)
          All the time let it shine.

Lead my teacher and my school
I'm going to let it shine (2)
All the time let it shine.

          Lead my parents and my friends
          I'm going to let it shine (2)
          All the time let it shine.

I'll take this light round the world
I'm going to let it shine (2)
All the time let it shine.

4. World stands in need of liberation

The world stands in need of liberation my Lord,It still has to feel your power,
The blind and the deaf, the dumb and the maimed,
All need to feel your healing touch,
The world stands in need of liberation my Lord,
It still has to learn to love.

1. There are those who have eye but refuse to see,
The inhumanity that's done,
There are those who have ears but refuse to hear,
The cries of those in agony.

2. There are those who have mouths but refuse to speak,
Against injustice done to some,
There are those who have hands but refuse to reach,
Them out in love and charity.

7. We stand with Hopeful eyes

We stand with Hopeful eyes facing to the sun,
With our hands and hearts we will work and pray,
And together we will sing as we travel on our way
We will walk in the light of our God today
We stumble while blind, groping in the dark
And we come to wash in the pool of life,

Anointed by God may the spirit take fight,
As we seek to serve all people with the gift of life.
With hearts filled with hope and our eyes charged with fire,
Will live as Saints and be born again,
Looking forward never back with our heads held high,
We will dance and dream the reign of God and never die.

8. Praise him in the Sanctuary

Praise Him in the Sanctuary, Praise Him in the sky above,
Praise Him for the acts of power He has done
Who with majesty is reigning, He has power over all,
Give Him glory and be thankful for His love
Come and praise Him, for the Lord is good
And His mercy is everlasting (2)


Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there is hatred let me bring your pardon Lord,
And where thee is doubt true faith in you.

Chorus: Oh! Master grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love with all my soul.
Make me a channel of your peace,

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
In giving to all men that we receive
And in dying that we're born to eternal life.
Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there's despair in life let me bring hope
Where there is darkness only light;
And where there's sadness ever joy.


There shall showers of blessings
This is the promise of love
There shall be seasons refreshing
Sent from the saviour above
Showers of blessing
Showers of blessing we need

Mercy drops rounds us are falling
But for the showers we plead.
There shall be showers of blessing
Sent them upon us O Lord
Grant to us now a refreshing
Come and now honour thy Lord.


Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father,
Let my country awake.
Where knowledge is free
Into that.........
Where the world has not been broken up
Into fragments by narrow domestic walls
Into that ......
Where words come out from the depth of truth,
Into that .........
Where tireless striving stretches its arms
towards perfection
Into that .......
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost
its way into the dreary desert of dead habit,
Into that ......
Where the mind is led forward by thee into
ever-widening thought and action.
Into that heaven of freedom, My Father,
Let my country awake.


Thy loving kindness is better than life (2)
My lips shall praise Thee, thus will bless Thee,
I will lift up my hands unto Thy name
The skies are telling the glory of God ......
Thy world is spoken, Thy message is heard ....

I will recount, Lord, Thy wonderful deeds .....
The Lord brings justice, His wisdom is great .....
The Lord is goodness, His wisdom is great ......
Thou forgiving, Thy mercy is sure ......
Happy the people who call on His name ......


When the sun has set and the nights is on
When the darkness fall and the light has gone,
You be my light, O Lord, and lead me on (2)

When I'm growing weak and my steps are slow,
When the hopes break and l've strength no more
You be my strength, O Lord, and lead me on. (2)

When my eyes grow dim and I cannot see,
When my chance is slim of a friend for me
You be my friend, O Lord, and lead me on. (2)

And when I cannot talk and there's no one here,
And I cannot walk though the end is near.
You be my rest, O Lord, and lead me on.(2)


Just like a child who trusts his father dear
And who delights to feel his presence near,
Just like a child whose mind has not a doubt
And whose heart is never proud.

Here I come, O Lord,
Here I come just like a child,
Here I come, O Lord,
Here I come just like a child

Just liked a child so weak he cannot stand,
But who holds firm and tight his mother's hand,
Just like a child who sings in bright daylight,
Fearing not the long dark night.


Father you are the artist with canvas and paint,
Colour my life with your blue skies and rains,
His seasons of sunshine and places of rain
Till I am a picture of him.

Ref: Make me a potratit of God
Paint his love over my sins
Make his eyes shine like a light through mine
To make me a potrait of him

Father I am a canvas for you to create
Capture the look of your son in my face
But when you paint problems Lord frame them with peace
Till I am a picture of him


In his time, in his time,
He makes all things beautiful in His time
Lord, please show me every day
As you're teaching me your way
That you do just what you say in your time

In your time, in your time
You make all things beautiful in your time
Lord, my life to you I bring
With its winter and its spring
May I fathom everything's in your time

There is a time, there's a time,
Both for sowing and for reaping there's a time
Time for loosing, time for gain
Time for joy and time for pain
Every purpose under heaven has a time

There are times, there are days
Weeks and months we cannot understand God's ways
If for years we fail to scan
What is his eternal plan
We'll remember that He can, all the time.


Ref: I have come to thee to take thy touch before I begin my day.
Let thy eye rest upon my eyes for a while
Let me take to my work the assurance of thy
           comradeship, my friend.

Fill my mind with thy music to last through
           the desert of noise.
Let thy love's sunshine kiss the peaks of my thoughts
And linger in my l ife's valley where the harvest ripens.


Bloom, bloom, bloom where you're planted,
You will find your way. Bloom, bl. Bl...
You will have your day.

Some plant the seeds that others will water,
But in all things God gives the growth,
Come, let Him garden the flowers within you,
Come and discover some you've never known.

Look at the love that lies deep within you.
Let yourself be! Let yourself be!
Look at the gifts you have been given,
Let them go free! Let them go free!


As the deer pants for the water,
So my soul longs after you.
You alone are my heart's desire
And I long to worship You.

You alone are my strength, my shield,
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my heart's desire
And I long to worship you.

I want You more than gold and silver,
Only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy-giver
And the apple of my eye.

You're my friend and You are my brother
Even though You are my God.
I love You more than any other,
So much more than anything.
