My Journey to God

All the Saints

All the saints are shining round us,
Shining, shining, they surround us.
Loving, praying, hoping for us,
Like a family who adores us.

Love of God extended through them,
Mystic, sacrificial emblem
Of God’s never-ending Passion,
Of His will to bring us to Him.

Power of God, to change and mold us,
Grace of God, to heal and hold us.
Saints and angels, leading on—
Guide us to our Heavenly home.

Help us to our Heavenly home.
