SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI PARISH SONG
NIXA, MISSOURI


We the parish of St. Francis, Rich in our diversity,
Gathered in the name of Jesus, Richer still in unity

REFRAIN:
O St. Francis of Assisi, mighty patron, we do pray,
Down the path of faith please lead us
In your shelter let us stay.

With the cross now lead us onward, Guide our every step we take,
Let it speak its truth among us, When we sleep and when we wake.  REFRAIN

May we share our time with others, Talents offered as we pray,
Owning nothing on our journey, Stewardship is but the way.  REFRAIN

Join our voices to the chorus, Of all nature singing praise,
Hills and valleys, trees and rivers, We respect the good God's ways.  REFRAIN

May this parish grow together, Help us write a single song,
That our efforts as one body, Give us peace and make us strong.  REFRAIN
