What was I following?

When I went away

Ideas of catholic priesthood?

No, no, no way

The powerful pull of Jesus

The Gospel words I read

The truth I felt I saw there

Every word he said


It’s still at work

That powerful pull

Leading me each day

All that I am reading

Everything I say

Tonight I dive again into

That gospel mystery

Looking for the essence

The grace that sets us free


Tonight I find the words of Paul

Direct and to the point

In your life give up all things

That do not lead to God

Powerful pointers on the road

Pointing straight ahead

I’m still a preacher always was

Always want to be

The light of Christ our Christmas joy

Purify you and me
