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!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
