John Vianney Cure of Ars

His austerity does not appeal

I rather like my dinner

But here’s the thing you can’t deny

His care for every sinner


Sent to live a village life

Two hundred souls in all

Thousands came to visit him

Impressive this footfall


Why did they come? What’s the appeal?

This little man of Ars

He knew the secrets of the heart

And the way to reach the stars


People sense a charlatan

They know the real McCoy

And visiting the priest of Ars

They found their personal joy


He listened to their tales of woe

Interpreted the heart

We call on him to bless us now

Help us this day to start
