Our Lady Speaks

Our Lady Speaks

When all was quiet and the world asleep
In the early morning from my bed I leaped

God called me forth a new day to ponder
And my soul responded sure it is no wonder

I stretched my limbs and washed my face
Then with eagerness settled down to meditate

And closing my eyes as I always do
I pleaded Holy Spirit please see me through

Please help me pray for I know I should
But alone I'm helpless there's nothing I can do

Quite soon I felt so calm, so warm
Though outside it was a cold and dark December morn'

From within I heard her greet me then
She whispered so softly "my child, my friend

Behold my Son and Him crucified
Remember dear it's for you He died

And apart from dying He himself still gives
As a piece of bread so that you might live

But my little one I remember oh so long ago
When none the Saviour Child did know

Till the Father sent and He chose me
The mother of His Son to be

Such a loving God I could not ignore
But yielded self like soil to sower

Do likewise my friend, let God's will be done
In you my child through Christ His Son

Seek not for Jesus in far off places
Thy next of kin, thy neighbour He's in their faces

He knows all the pain, the grief that they now feel
Can you love God and they not heed?

‘Tis true, He atoned in full so long ago
But all have not yet come to know

The one who came to set them free
By dying there upon a tree

I implore you my child please be their friend
Upon our prayers they now depend

Do pray with love their souls caressing
And gain for them thy Fathers blessing

Then, one day with lamps a burning bright
They too will win eternal life

Yes you my child can play your role
To save with me for God their souls

If for the while there's no reply
Don't cast thee down nor wonder why

What God refused your invocation
He will grant to their salvation

So now my child please don't be sad
Pray always for the good and the bad

My little one just do your best
Then trust in God He'll do the rest

Somewhere a sinner may repent
Because thy time in prayer was spent

Now, be brave, take up thy cross I say to you
And as my Son thy likewise do

If like Him at times you lose your feet
The load's too heavy, the hill's too steep

You're tired, alone and sore, you feel so blue
Fear not, I'll be there my child to see you through

Yes, upon my word you may depend
As with Jesus I'm with you till the journeys end

And when you bow your head and die
I'll take you with me beyond the sky

You'll stand before thy Fathers throne
With sweet voices singing welcome home

And this time when you kneel thee down
With God's own hands you will be crowned

Now my little one you can be glad
These precious gifts are yours to have

For to you my child, my friend
I'll give, and give, and give again

And from my Immaculate Heart I say to you
I love you; love you, through and through".

Thank you!

I have been praying the rosary every day for about a week, and have been disappointed at the lack of response I've gotten. But the passage in the poem about how not to fear from no reply, it saves souls, really made me feel better. Please pray for me.
Thank you

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
