A heart after God

How blessed is the one who yearns for the Lord

With a heart after God

Seeking the truth

Striving after ideals

Such a one moves mountains

With the gift of faith intact

Blessed was I  to have been with such a one

A young priest  all the way from another continent

But a global village is our world today

And  in the universal church are we

How blessed to be in the company of such a one

Such a heart beating with passion

Such a heart that imitates the Good Shepherd

Striving from moment to moment to let Him have His way

To lay all down as His for all time and for all eternity

What an inspiration1

What hope it inspires in us

All who long to follow the Good Shepherd

Praise God!
