Morning Mass


I go to Mass online these days

Today in Donegal

People kneeling in their pews

The priest prays for us all

The sanctuary a holy place

Quiet dignity

The gift the Lord has left to us

His presence in a sign


In this place the Lord now speaks

We listen to his word

And our response is sacred speech

Our words we know are heard

Of all the words we say today

None so short or sweet

As the common prayer we come to say

When earth and heaven meet


The Lord who spoke in Galilee

And in the Upper Room

Speaks today in daily Mass

I cannot come too soon

Not orphans now we walk the road

The Lord is at our side

Bless us dear Lord on this new day

Here with us abide
