The Rector and Vice Rector of St. Michael's Cathedral in Toronto

O God beyond all praising,

     we worship you today

and sing the love amazing

     that songs cannot repay;

for we can only wonder

     at every gift you send,

at blessings without number

     and mercies without end:

we lift our hearts before you

     and wait upon your word,

we honor and adore you,

     our great and mighty Lord.


The flower of earthly splendor

     in time must surely die,

its fragile bloom surrender

     to you the Lord most high;

but hidden from all nature

     the eternal seed is sown -

though small in mortal stature,

     to heaven's garden grown:

for Christ the Man from heaven

     from death has set us free,

and we through him are given

     the final victory!


Then hear, O gracious Savior,

     accept the love we bring,

that we who know your favor

     may serve you as our king;

and whether our tomorrows

     be filled with good or ill,

we'll triumph through our sorrows

     and rise to bless you still:

to marvel at your beauty

     and glory in your ways,

and make a joyful duty

     our sacrifice of praise.

Can you please ask ALL readers to say the Rosary every day or more Rosaries the better!
for the success of the whole world and Italy who will be raising up against their dictator on May 30th. If you look on from there are already 1,000 secret undercover police in Rome harassing people.

The Rosary saved the people, see Battle of Lepanto and also in Austria when invaders left without bloodshed.
Keep up the good work and God bless,
