An Ode to the Missionary

Abandon be the theme of thee
To the Lord above eternally
Thine heart restored suffereth still
For the love of One in Three to fill

Radiant be thine light shineth forth
Be mindful of thy true worth
Enthroned the Cross forever be
In the hearts and minds of those who see

Rejoice! Be glad, pain won’t last!
Salvation comes but not as fast
Virtue be instilled within
Cast far away from thee ye sin

Lives touched and changed for good
Treasures indeed but never could
Thout God in His goodness and splendour share
Our all, our all, ‘tis not but fair

Beauty and courage abounds in thee
Strength and valour if not be free
The Maker provides for all who wait
The line is crooked be though it straight

Affirm my heart though weak and frail
Strength will come through be’t slow as snail
Hope comes to those whose flames are lit
Abound in grace that ye be fit

Bitter though the fighting be
How sweet it is for victory
Assured that battle has been won
By God’s one and only Son

To Mary be oh hail we sing
A prayer for us we humbly ring
Until such time that God calls forth
Entrust to you our souls’ worth

To this I say with all my might
With this I stand and truly fight
Unwavering though my faith may be
In You I trust until I see

Oh love my soul, oh love until
The world doth end and comes to still
And when thy Saviour faces thee
Behold the glory for you to be
