A Pilgrim's Prayer

O Mother Mary, O Virgin sweet,
I come to pray at they feet,
I come to thee from so very far
O Virgin Queen, be my guiding star.

Lead me right along life's darkening way
Guide my steps lest I should stray.
If I should stumble, falter or fall,
O Blessed Mother, hear my call.

O Lovely Lady in cape so blue,
In direst need I come to you.
Despise not that for which I plead,
O Mother Dear, please intercede.

When the road seems long and all up hill,
Hear my prayer if it be God's will.
And what'er befalls, when life's race is run,
Please let me say, "God's will be done."

Cletus J. Walter

Peace be with you!
Rosemarie, OCDS
