Ch. O Saint Claudine Thevenet

Our hearts rise in song to our God Almighty
Who chose to honour you today.

1. Like a flower that shies from all praise
Conceals its true beauty from humans
Yet blossoms in splendour before God alone
Such was your life here on earth.

2. We pray for the courage and zeal
To bring little children to Jesus
So that they may know Him and grow in His Love
And thus give glory to God.

3. God tried you like gold in the fire
He filled up your mouth with great turmoil
‘Twas then He prepared your meek soul for His work
How great, how good is our God.

4. And now from among all the saints
Look down on us all here your children
And ask God to strengthen our love and our zeal
To spread His word to the world.
