Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you;

blessed are the young women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb,

Gentle Jesus


Gentle Jesus listen closely

To the words that I would say,

‘Tis with love that knows no limits,

That I come to Thee today.

For without You life is empty,

With no comfort anyplace,

I have naught save You to help me,

Do not turn away Thy face.

Gentle Jesus teach me patience,

Take away this foolish pride,

Grant I only permitted,

To continue at Thy side.

Though my heart is sometimes weary,

And my eyes are filled with tears,

I have only but to tell Thee

And my sorrow disappears.

Gentle Jesus, Lord and Master,

Deep within this human shell,

Lives a soul which Thou hast ransomed,

It would love Thee long and well.

You have felt as I am feeling,

Who could better understand,

That the One who meekly listened,

To their “crucify the Man!”

Soul of Christ


Soul of Christ, sanctify me;
Body of Christ, save me;
Blood of Christ, inebriate me;
Water from the side of Christ, wash me;
Passion of Christ, strengthen me;
0 good Jesus, hear me;
Within Thy wounds, hide me;
Permit me not to be separated from ‘Thee;
From the wicked foe defend me;
In the hour of my death call me,
And bid me come unto Thee,
That with all Thy saints I may praise Thee
For ever and ever. Amen.

If I Can Help Somebody

Simla Chandigarh Diocese_Sunset by the lake

If I can help somebody

As I pass along

If I can cheer somebody

When things go wrong

If I can show somebody

He is travelling wrong

Then my life will not be in vain

If I can help somebody

As I pass along

Then my living will not be in vain

If I can do my duty

As a child of God ought

If I can bring back beauty

To a world of wrath

If I can spread love’s message

That the Master taught

Then my living shall not be in vain

As I pass along

Then my living shall not be in vain
