♦Poems in honor of Mother Teresa:

 

♦Tribute To Blessed Mother Teresa

 

 

 The blessed of the Missionaries of Charity,

An excellent example of love and charity,

To you, let me pay my tribute, humble,

For your many a blessing innumerable,

To one and all you were, indeed, a mother,

Your life has always been for the other,

The least, the lost and the poorest of the poor,

You were in Spirit poor; in word and deed, pure

Fragrance of Christ all around you did spread

To the hungry, you did give food and bread,

To the homeless, you did give home and bed,

For God’s glory great, all you did and said,

With a prayerful heart you did stand for,

The unwanted, the unloved and the uncared for,

You did consider the poor as your own,

For them many a project you did carry on,

We all thank Thee, Jesus Christ our Lord

For this precious gem for our motherland,

To the last and great mandate of Christ,

You did give priority first and foremost,

Honour and glory, in fact, you did bring,

To our Lord, Jesus, and your praise I sing

Charm and grace you did add to your office

You did share our Lord Jesus’ peace and grace.
