help me live this day,
Quietly, Easily
To lean upon Your great strength,
Trustfully, Respectfully,
To await the unfolding of Your will,
Patiently, Serenely,
To meet others,
Peacefully, Joyously,
To face tomorrow confidently un courageously.


I live alone

Stay by my side, O Lord,
For I am alone.
I need your presence with me
Night and day, to share my home,
To guide me on my way.

Keep me safe from danger,
Fill my heart with joy.
Give me your peace, your gift to share with those whose hearts are troubled
or despair.
And even when the shadow of the Cross falls on my path
I see your Easter sunlight through the dark.

I live alone, dear Lord,
But I am sure your gaze is ever on me as on an only child.

Abide in me, dear Lord,
That I may live in you.


Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of Heaven, to earth come down,
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling,
All Thy faithful mercies crown;
Jesu, Thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love Thou art;
Visit us with Thy salvation,
Enter every trembling heart.


It is sweet music

It is sweet music to the ear to say:
I salute you, O Mother!
It is a sweet song to repeat:
I salute you, O holy Mother!

You are my delight, dear hope and chaste love,
My strength in all adversities.

If my spirit that is troubled
And stricken by passions
Suffer from the painful burden of sadness and weeping;
If you see your child overwhelmed by misfortune,
O gracious Virgin Mary,
Let me find rest in your motherly embrace.

But alas,
Already the last day is quickly approaching.
Banish the demon to the infernal depths,
And stay close, dear Mother
To your aged and erring child.

With a gentle touch,
Cover the weary pupils
And kindly consign to God
The soul that is returning to Him.
