My Journey to God

Awakening

Saint John the Baptist, Patron dear,
Who for our Lord prepared the way,
Pray that we welcome Jesus when
He offers us new life today.

Saint John the Baptist, Pray for Us!
That we receive our Risen Lord.

You bid the people to repent,
Turning away from dark and sin,
Seeking the Lord at our hearts’ door.
Pray when He knocks, we’ll let Him in.

Saint John the Baptist, Pray for Us!
That we receive our Risen Lord.

Your cousin Jesus is the Lamb,
Showing His mercy, granting us peace.
May His peace in our hearts still grow,
And in our life His love increase.

Saint John the Baptist, Pray for Us!
That we receive our Risen Lord.
