Grateful for the light of faith

Grateful for the light of faith received in Limasawa
With Mary we sail as faithful disciples of Christ....

Our voices we raise in thanksgiving unceasing,
Our hearts join our islands and seas in rejoicing,
Grateful for the light of faith received in limasawa
With Mary we sail as faithful disciples of Christ.

Far out in the East, peoples in darkness waiting for Christ,
to bask in His brightness.
Storms and rough seas sank not the big galleons
One island, one land, Christ's first companions

Our voices we raise in thanksgiving unceasing,
Our hearts join our islands and seas in rejoicing,
Grateful for the light of faith received in limasawa
With Mary we sail as faithful disciples of Christ.

Faith is God's gift a seed that he planted
Good soil in hearts, a nation beloved
Grateful for this gift His light imparted
In the Eucharist first celebrated

Chapels and churches in barrios so far
Brave missionaries no hardships could jar
Mary, our mother, welcomed and honored
In homes abiding, God ever adored.

Faithful disciples of Christ...
