A Sad Child's Prayer


Oh precious Mother of the Most Sacred Heart
Hear my tearful cries and hopeful prayer
Just tell me where to begin or start
To stop these unwanted feelings of despair
I try to do only what God does want
From any human being imperfect
But I still do hear the voice of sin’s taunt
Which my heart and soul does in fact reject
In my mind, I sometimes ask the reason why
Life on earth is invariably so terribly bad
But in my heart, I’ll do my best until I die
To trust in our Lord Jesus, and not be sad
I never ever want to hurt another’s soul
The way that mine has been done
I want to feel alive, once more made whole
By the glory of Jesus Christ, your son
I honor you, with all of my heart and believing
Oh Queen of Heaven and Earth and the angels above
Your Holy Son’s life and words fill my soul’s being
And help me and remind me of God’s never ending love

The world is full of meat and drink,
