We pray first for our Pope.
Lend him the strength to cope
with those who have no hope.
Lord hear our prayer.

For those ripped from the womb
and buried without a tomb,
for those who wrought their doom”
Lord hear our prayer.

For leaders who betray
their Catholic faith and stray
far from the Truth, the Way”
Lord hear our prayer.

For each who has no faith
and goes through life, a wraith
not knowing what God saith”
Lord hear our prayer.

The poorest of the poor
are knocking at the door.
How can our church do more?
Lord hear our prayer.

For all the faithful dead,
freed from our mortal dread,
who trod the paths we tread”
Lord hear our prayer.

That Michael’s blazing sword,
the right arm of the Lord,
lead us to our reward”
Lord hear our prayer.

That God may someday see
this world of misery
as it was meant to be”
Lord hear our prayer.
