Send me

Glory and praise to you Lord
By the fire of your Love,
make our hearts burn
.

He wanted to offer that zeal
to all those who were baptised:
For the lost sheep, he would be willing
to go to the ends of the earth
In the steps of his Master, without sparing himself.

Enraptured by your Spirit and burning with zeal,
He preached endlessly, in mission after mission.
As a spiritual guide, he gathered priests together
all zealous like himself, as disciples of Jesus,

In our days which are so cold, dear Father, let more
Fires of love of your Spirit be kindled in our homes,
So that your name will be honoured and your kingdom come,
Jesus, come to us and warm our hearts.

Hymn to Nicolas Roland
