I went to the church and was blessed by the priest
Having long unconfessed thus declined Eucharist.
Singing hymns with great joy
My heart rose to share the evening mass
Filled with Love and Care.
It seems to me as we raise candles high
That the light does shine forth to give us a sign.
Good people rose from their pews
To shake hands with and smile upon each other
Giving Love and Care.
Heading home quiet streets with stores closed for the night
Hoping fam'lies of children all tucked warm and tight
Sweet dreaming of plumbing sugared delights
Cookies are brought from the neighbors to share
Receiving with grace so much Love and Care.
This day of forgiveness and spiritual lift
May move the remorseful to understand their blessed gifts.
Let us come awake and aware of our light
To live with each other with Love and Care.
