The Message

Wet and windy morning

Wrapped against the weather

Young folk there aplenty

Faithfully endeavour

To catch the word of Jesus

Given out today

Urbi et orbi

Francis has his say


Lists the many places

Of love in short supply

Poverty and hunger

People left to die

Nations still in uproar

Spoiling for a fight

Listen to this infant child

Learn how love is right


Let the word of Jesus

Enter in my heart

Live today and every day

As from the very start

Learn to be a child again

Open wide your eyes

Give wide embrace to everyone

Be your own surprise
