“What is a Saint?” you ask of me
“What is it that they’ve done?”
They lived a life of holiness,
And Heaven’s crown they’ve won.
The Church has always recognized,
Some for emulation,
The one’s whose honor, laud, and praise,
Deserve our veneration.
Heroes and Heroines worthy,
Examples of Christ’s love,
Surrendering life and spirit,
To God alone above.
May they intercede for us and
Pray us through to Heaven,
So we may prove triumphant with
The grace which God has given.
