Now I Know

All my life I’ve lived with God

Believed and talked to him

School and church and family

The confessing of our sin

Submitted to vocation talk

Persuaded from my home

Dressed in black anointed then

Holy priest of Rome


Did as I was asked to do

Parish and mission brief

Did not know the world at all

Did not know of grief

Now I know how life can fail

The upsets of the heart

The world will be our teacher

And we must play our part


The Lord he asks for followers

Not members of a crowd

What do you want he asks of me

Answer him out loud

Faith it is a doing deed

Not some quiet notion

Pray today and walk his way

Live the true devotion
