Lord, like the lilies that fill our senses
with their pure fragrance,
so fill us with Your pure gifts.
Fill our hearts with Your peace,
the peace only You can give,
the peace of pure holiness;
Fill our minds with all
that is good and pure,
all that is noble and just.
Fill our spirits with the joy
of knowing that You endured
all Your suffering to purify us
and make us whole.
Lord, fill us with Your Spirit!
Spirit of holiness. Let us rejoice,
the Lord has rise indeed!
- Columban Fr. Pat Sayles
