 LET ME BE THE BEARER OF YOUR LOVE

(A prayer of a consecrated person to God)

Words & Music: Fr. Nino T. Andrade, OSA


Every day I sing to You with all my heart,

Hear my pray'r, I raise them all into Your hands.

Come to me and keep me safe in your arms,

Strengthen me to face the day,

For You I stand


Even there is sadness, stay with me

And fill me with your joy endlessly.

Lord, help me understand,

To follow your commands.

I entrust my life into your care.


CHORUS

My Lord, fill me with your love,

Fill me with your truth,

Fill me with your kindness.

My Lord, let your goodness shine.

Let me speak your truth.

Let me be the bearer of your love


Every day, Let me proclaim and testify,

In your word, Show me your way,

For you are light.

You alone can bring all wonders in this life.

Heal all wounds and take all worries I hide.


Even there is darkness, stay with me

And in your hands I hold faithfully.

Lord, fill your grace inside,

Grant me what you desire.

I raise all my voice, Lord, sing with me.

Repeat Chorus

Words and music by Fr. Carlo MagnoS. Marcelo


A

Almighty Father, our hearts lift to you

your loving servants, Lord,

you know them through and through.

Ordained, blessed, consecrated to you,

they are serving us and teaching us your Truth.

B

And as Jesus showed us when he washed their feet,

hetold them: ‘Do the same to all that you meet.’

In this time of change and uncertainty,

webeg you, we lift this prayer to you:

C

Father,

bless them, heal them, restore them,renew them.

These we ask for your laborers, O Lord.

Father,

call them, inflame them, empower them,send them

as they lift once more their ‘Yes’ to you

for the laborers of your vineyard, Lord,

are here now before you.

They’re not perfect at all

but their hearts beat for you.(Repeat C)


Coda:

Father,

forgive them, guide them, protect them, embrace them

as they walk with you….

as they pray to you…

as they give their ‘Yes’ once more….to you.

Father, bless them.

Bless them

Tagaytay City, June 7, 2008
(Theme Song of the Episcopal Ordination of Most Rev. Gerardo Alminaza, D.D.)

Come, come and receive my love; abide in me for you are mine.
Come, come take my gift of love; I called you by name and you are mine.
Everything I’ve given you, now I ask you to give;
For if you wish to abide in me, then live as I live;
Until my love is perfected in you.

Come, come look into my heart; I’ll share with you all that’s mine.
Come, come drink with me the cup; stay with me through the night.
Everything I’ve given you, now I ask you to give;
For if you wish to abide in me, then live as I live;
Until my love is perfected in you.

Go and be my voice, my arms; embrace the poor for they are mine.
Go, now feed my sheep, your flock; I am with you ‘til the end of time.
I am with you ‘til the end of time!
