Hymns

Welcome, Thérèse, to Scotland’s soil today,

 

Tune:    Highland Cathedral

 

Welcome, Thérèse, to Scotland’s soil today,

Come to remind us of your ‘Little Way’.

Teach us the secrets of Christ’s love and grace

Learned through His Childhood and His Holy Face.

 

Love and faith were the driving force:

God’s Merciful Love – poured on your soul -

Drew your childlike heart on course:

Surrender so pure and whole.

 

Called to a life of dedicated prayer,

Daily you offered all you had and were:

Nothing too small to give Him, joy or pain,

Wandering hearts to Jesus’ love to gain.

 

When the clouds gathered heavily,

All joy and light… disappeared.

Holding fast with fidelity,

You steadily persevered.

 

Soaring to God on wings of faith and trust,

Confidence raised you to the heights of love,

Love all-encompassing, so deep and just:

Drawing us with you to His home above.

 

We in our country of Scotland, pray

That day by day, we love him like you.

Saint Thérèse, through your ‘Little Way’,

All Scotland’s faith renew.

 

Words: Carmelite Monastery, Dysart.

Hymn to St. Thérèse

 

Tune:    Loch Lomond

Saint Therese of Lisieux

Little Child of God

Gifted to us from heaven

Guiding us on your Little Way

Drawing us on our journey to Jesus

 

The Light of Christ

The only Way

The Way of Truth and Life

A soul consumed

In love Divine

Sweetest love of Jesus our Saviour

 

Scatter your petals on us we pray

Gentle as dew on the Earth

Distill the love

The love of Christ

'Till our hearts are consumed

In His passion

 

Saint Therese of Lisieux

Little child of God

Gifted to us from heaven

Guiding us on your Little Way

Drawing us on our journey to Jesus
