Lenten Reflections II


Renew your faith in Jesus Christ;
With child-like hearts, let's once more start;
Let prayers be fervent, steadfast;
Let sacrifices free minds, hearts!

Let fasting make us more alert;
Let humility be the base;
Let selfishness turn selfless love;
Let's resurrect like how Christ did!

Let lent rejuvenate spirits;
Let us be holy like the Lord;
Let lent be lent to make souls pure;
Let hearts afill with god's wisdom.

Open our eyes and ears, O Lord!
Let's see and hear all that's divine;
Trim our branches to flower and fruit;
Make us instruments of your peace.


Help me to learn and know your ways;
Draw my heart closer to thyself;
Instill your love into my heart;
Let my soul yearn to be thine part!
