Prayer for Priests

11 Jan

Keep them I pray Thee, Dearest Lord,

Keep them for they are Thine:

Thy priests whose lives burn out before

Thy consecrated shrine.

 

Keep them for they are in the world,

Though from the world apart,

When earthly pleasures tempt and allure,

Shelter them in Thy heart.

 

Keep them and comfort them

In hours of loneliness and pain

When all their life of sacrifice

For souls seems but in vain.

 

Keep them and oh remember, Lord,

They have no one but Thee

Yet they have only human hearts

With human frailty.

 

Keep them as spotless as the Host

That daily they caress

That every thought and word and deed

Deign, Dearest Lord, to bless.

 

Amen.
