Hymn to St. Augustine

Today is the Feast Day of St. Augustine, he's the patron saint of my alma mater - La Consolacion College Caloocan City.

I remember singing this song every August 28th in honor of St. Augustine.

THE GREAT ST. AUGUSTINE

Refrain

With joy and thanksgiving
Now let our voices ring
In song of happiness
In praise of God's goodness
For to us God has given
A saint, a father, a friend
A gift of love from heaven
The great St. Augustine

I.
You are our guide
Thanks for your life of love
Smile on us St. Augustine
Listen as we pray and sing

Repeat Refrain

II.
Our inspiration too
Your wish we'd like to do
Smile on us St. Augustine
Help us to be true like you.


Repeat Refrain

Thanksgiving Prayer


Thank you, Father, for having created us and given us to each other in the human family. Thank you for being with us in all our joys and sorrows, for your comfort in our sadness, your companionship in our loneliness. Thank you for yesterday, today, tomorrow and for the whole of our lives. Thank you for friends, for health and for grace. May we live this and every day conscious of all that has been given to us. Amen.
