We need saints. . .

Colten Symmes, diocese of Biloxi

Arise, O Sleeper, Awake from your dreamy state

For what’s at stake is your soul

And you have a decision to make

Eternal life or eternal death,

In the end it’s all that’s left

So what will it be?

You are free

To choose to deal with the joys and the strife’s of this life

In two different ways

You can offer up to Him or throw ’em all away

I know it is hard to hear

And on the ear of the heart its a little tough

But I got the best news for you and that is “God is Love”

“I want you” he says, no this ain’t Uncle Sam

But the Paschal Lamb,

Who revealed Himself to Moses as “I Am who I Am”

The Church who is our Mother

Is calling you my sisters and brothers

To become holy solely out of Love

for the One who was high in heavens

Yet stooped down to the lowly

He is calling the youth

to labor for the truth

To let their mouths be open wide, tongues untied

not to be shy but let flow the Spirit

So that everyone can hear it

And again from the young, it must be sung

The great gift that life is

Whether you pick up trash or work in the show biz

He is calling for authentic families

Moms, dads, grandpas and grannies

to make the home a place of love and of peace

Where the incense of offering smells like bacon grease

From being a cook to reading a book to your kids

Even when you’re tired

and not complaining when you hear

“Honey, change that smelly poopy diaper”

It’s in the little things, the soul loudly sings

The praises of the Lord

Producing a sweet melody

Of a humble fiat of “Let it be”

He is calling for a permeation

A going out to all nations

From the crooks and crannies of society

To even medical doctor’s lobby

Preaching by our lives the mercy of the Almighty

He is calling us all to be bold

The young and the old

To let the story be told

That Christ is Risen

As all the bells forever toll

For this ain’t a matter of going hard or going home

But both/and

Giving all that we can

In loyal service to the God-Man

Arise, O Sleeper awake from your faint

it’s time to shine Christ’s light, its time to be a saint!
