Margaret Anna Fridays

Every Friday, I’m going to share a quote from the founder of my groovy sisters, Margaret Anna Cusack, known in religion as Mother Francis Clare. This week’s installment …


"AMEN;" yes, it meaneth
Lord so let it be,
What Thou willest and pleasest
Is dearest to me;

Like a soft gush of music
Borne off on the breeze
Where at evening it sighegth
In tall, leafy trees,

So floateth our "Amen"
Up into God's ear,
For prayer is the music
He loveth to hear.

Oh! say it, then, meekly,
Oh! breathe it out low,
Since up into Heaven
Your accents will go.

The angels will hear it,
And Mary will plead
For the blessings and graces
Our sinful souls need

One day we must utter
Our last fait "Amen;"
May God in His Mercy
Remember us then
Cloister Songs and Hymns for Children, 1881
