(Our Lady of Fatima Shrine, Bison, Oklahoma)

***** ***** ***** *****

So many years have come and gone,

Since they knelt at Mary’s feet,

Three children born of peasant folk,

Who tended to their sheep.

Some prophecies have passed their time,

But there’s a few that thrive.

Our Lady’s promises of peace,

When will that time arrive?

How should I follow her requests?

What is it I should do?

How can I help converting souls,

And get to heaven to?

I am just a simple woman,

A mother and a wife,

With a rosary in my pocket,

My safety line for life.

I pray my beads with all my heart,

Because she asked us to,

And wear her woolen scapular;

Her help to keep me true.

I offer up my daily pains

As sacrifice for souls,

That they may feel the peace of God

As only He consoles.

It’s been almost a hundred years,

The battle’s not yet won,

We must obey our Mother’s plan,

Before God’s peace will come.
