Long days and nights are what he spends

As shepherd to his flock

Of souls who need his tending care

Sometimes around the clock

It’s early every morning when

He hits his knees to pray

Late nights prostrate upon his face

He wrestles in the fray

Each day upon the altar stone

He offers sacrifice

Christ’s very flesh he gives to us

And blood that paid the price

Each moment of the day not his

Not in the very least

His time is filled with saving souls

This is our parish priest

Your poems are a true joy. God bless you for putting into words what most people do not know how to express.
Love the Parish Priest. It is something I would like to present to every priest I know.
Thanks,
Anna Marie
