“Love is repaid by love alone” was her motto,
She found courage for bitterness and suffering to undergo.
With these words ever present in her heart,
She and Jesus were never apart.
She was God’s little flower,
His blessings on her he would shower.
She taught us her “little way“,
That we may draw closer to God every day.
She loved the Lord wholeheartedly,
In her his love he found.
She was a mirror of angelic purity,
‘Cause she walked on holy ground.
When she lived she taught us to say,
“Lord, I’m trying not to stray.“
O’ Saint Therese, please help me,
To carry my cross and become holy.
