3/19/17 Through 3/25/17

3/19/17 Through 3/25/17

The waters from that famous well
His living waters far excel
No word or deed unknown to Him
For in His light, all else is dim

His water truly satisfies
And in His presence hearts arise
When in His love our hearts emersed
Then gone forever is our thirst.

St.  Joseph learned to suffer long
Yet remained so quiet and strong
Obeying quickly every word
That from the angel's voice he heard

His love so pure he sacrificed
His right as husband toward his wife
Accepting his heroic role
To reach the Father's holy goal

Forgiveness is love's boundless gift
He grants to all both full and swift
Debt washed away in mercy's flood
And so, our sins, in precious blood

Now we must too, in love, forgive
That we might find the way to live
Eternally with Love divine
And with His will, our will align

Lord grant your people great resolve
Their sins and failures, now absolve
That conformed unto Your word
The path You show would be preferred

No other path can show the way
But only lead Your sheep astray
Oh Lord, Your law, we must observe
And others learn to humbly serve

Your ways all wise, intelligent
So teach us always to repent
And learn from You the way of love
That we may live with You above

Listen to My voice, then I will be your God
Walk in all my ways, and riches, then applaud
Turn your back to evil, and face your God above
See the marks that evil made, upon the God of love

Love beyond all telling
Waves of darkness swelling
Counting gain as loss
Shouldering the cross

Rooted as the cedar
Love becomes our leader
Blossom on the vine
Who's blood becomes our wine

The wise can understand
The gift of promised land
Then turn from sin and wrath
To find the narrow path

Overshadowed filled with grace
Her womb became His dwelling place
Without the touch of mortal man
Our God worked out His holy plan

The child of the Virgin born
That cold and blessed Christmas morn
Would show all men the life above
By showing them a life of love
