My Journey to God

In Every Language

Thank You, thank You, thank You, God!
For Holy water in the fonts
Candles ready to be lit
Opening procession down the aisle
Gathering song!

Thank You, thank You
For glorious crimson bouquets
Crowning Your Sanctuary,
Crying out Your Spirit’s descent!
For Glorias to be sung and
Alleluias to be raised on this blessed day,
The promise fulfilled of Our
Risen Lord.
Thank You, Gracias, Merci!
For joyous return of beloved gifts
After such a long and aching absence!
Blessings bestowing ever more grace
To our praise and worship of You, Oh God
Beloved in every language
Even as on that first glorious outpouring
Of Your Spirit.

Grazie, Muito Obrigada, Spasibo, Tack!
In tongues and words unframed in our hearts
Forever and ever!
Thank You.
