R. Michael Cullinan (1937–)


Our Fa­ther’s love, so vast and bound­less—
His arms of mer­cy op­ened wide—
Has sent His Son on earth to save us
Through nail-pierced hands and wound­ed side.

Lord Je­sus Christ, the Cross You’ve tak­en
Has lift­ed up and set us free
To live in one­ness with each oth­er
In per­fect peace and harmony.

Fill me, Lord, with Your Ho­ly Spir­it
That I may know and do Your will;
Grant me the grace to trust You dai­ly,
And love with­in my heart in­still.

And at the time when I am dy­ing,
May Je­sus come and life re­store,
Calling me from my grave to meet Him
To live with Him for ev­er­more.
