DANA MARIE GREGORIO

Colegio de las Hijas de Jesus, Iloilo City

 

OH, CANDIDA

Her eyes fold so gently as she prays on her knees,

"Oh Candida, give me the strength to follow you."

As she feels God's love, pure and gentle as the breeze;

She hoped to share God's mission, all-loving and true.

She possessed the desire to spread God's all true love;

A kinship of souls desiring to serve the Lord.

"Like Saint Candida, it would be desired to have;

A community of believers, spreading God's word."

With a compassionate heart she set out to seek,

Persons in need of conversion, to make them see;

In God's embrace, all is welcome — gentle and the meek;

Through prayer, through faith, all you need's a gentle plea.

In the vast plains of the Earth, her soul wants to claim,

That "In Jesus you'll have everything," she proclaims.

A soul wishing to share, to proclaim, and to preach,

Jesus' and Saint Candida's teachings to beseech.

She softly trudges the Earth for lost souls to ease,

To preach of the Gospel and God's love, she will do.

No depths. no limitations — across lands and seas;

To convert into believers — lives to renew.

As she prays to Saint Candida, faith, hope, and love:

To have strength and guidance — the Lord to be adored.

Wholeheartedly offered to our God, no more halves;

A faith so purely strong all sickness to be cured.

A devoted girl — once so quiet and so meek,

Now an instrument of faith for all souls with glee;

In her mission all souls are saved — sinners and the weak;

For it's in God's grasp salvation is guaranteed.

As she sees in the smiles of the souls who acclaim,

"Thank you, my dear girl, you have helped me." they exclaim.

Unredeemable souls of sin once out of reach,

Changed by a desire of a simple girl to preach.
