Mary Of Nazareth

Pope Francis gives us words every day

Today he tells us simply how to be

I am tossed about by mood often grey

Up and down where is the steady me?


Francis speaks of Mary and her life

How she listened when the angel came

Her days were filled with worry and with strife

But look and see and learn the very same


Her attitude was one of openness

Ready reception of whatever came

Bethlehem and Nazareth and Calvary the cross

Be it done to me accordingly her aim


Here then is my way to live my life

As servant of the Lord from this day on

The joys and sorrows whatever worldly strife

Let these things be your grace will guide me on
