Alon Calinao Dy (Samar, Philippines)
The greatest gift I could offer to God,
The best thing I could give to the world
Is none other but my life itself
for the common good of the people.
Perhaps, I would die rendering my task
But God knows, I would never ever ask
Why I do this for the poor
'Cause I want them to love Him more.
I wouldn't mind my own happiness
Because my very core
Is to make them closer to God
To fully understand His words.
I do it for free because of my love for Him
And no greater joy in my heart
Than to serve my Master and be part
Of a peaceful, beautiful and better world.
