Your Heart Today

Manoling Francisco, SJ

Where there is fear I can allay,
Where there is pain I can heal,
Where there are wounds I can bind,
And hunger I can fill,

Lord, grant me courage,
Lord, grant me strength,
Grant me compassion that I may be Your heart today.

Where there is hate I can confront,
Where there are yokes I can release,
Where there are captives I can free,
And anger I can appease,

When comes the day I dread to see our broken world,
Compel me from my cell grown cold that Your people I may behold.

And when I've done all that I could,
Yet there are hearts I cannot move,
Lord, give me hope that I may be Your heart today.
