BLESSED FRANCIS, HOLY FATHER


1 Blessed Francis, holy father,
Now our hearts to thee we raise,
As we gather here before thee,
Pouring forth our hymn of praise.
2 Bless thy children, holy Francis,
Who thy mighty help implore,
For in heaven thou remainest
Still the father of the poor.
3 By the love so deep and burning
For thy Savior crucified;
By the tokens which He gave thee
On thy hands, and feet and side:
4 Bless thy children, holy Francis,
With those wounded hands of thine,
From thy glorious throne in heaven,
Where resplendestly they shrine.
