Jesus passed along your path one morning
~ I ~
Jesus passed along your path one morning,
And seeing you, He called you by your name:
He would make you a witness of His Kingdom,
You would bring the Good News throughout His reign.
And you set out traversing seas and mountains,
To all you preached the message of the Lord:
You reached the farthest islands and their peoples
Showing them God’s forgiveness and His love.
CLARET, you are a pilgrim, you are a sower
The seed you scatter is the Good News,
You reached all colours and races,
There’s only one Father, only one Lord.
CLARET, through your example, we see our mission,
We must be witnesses, we must bring hope,
We want to follow your footsteps
And tell the people that God is love.
~ II ~
Your aim to spread the gospel of the Kingdom,
Your life was filled with Jesus and His word;
And you brought him to villages and peoples,
Just like Mary, her son gave to the world.
We, too, will follow closely your example,
The new Claretian family in Christ;
We wish to be a beacon in the darkness
And to all bring the hope of a new life.
