Oh! Hear My Prayer St. Patrick. (A poem by Walter Magill © Copyright 1992)

Oh! Hear my prayer St. Patrick
From this your Erin’s Isle
Your people all are fighting
Their hearts are filled with vile
Their blood is on your green fields
Your towns and cities fair
Your children all are crying
Their future’s in despair.

Oh! Hear My Prayer St. Patrick
To you I humbly plead
Grant peace to all your people
To each their God and creed
To each bestow your blessing
And give your shamrock green
And touch their hearts with loving
A place they’ve never been.

Oh! Hear My Prayer St. Patrick
Before I’m laid to rest
To walk the streets of Ireland
My shamrock on my breast
My hand to hold with strangers
To walk with friend and foe
To seal the path of friendship
Myself with them will go.

Oh! Hear My Prayer St. Patrick
From this your Erin’s Isle
The darkness is upon us
We need your loving smile
We need your Staff of Comfort
Your peace for all to see
Your Christian hands of blessing
We need your TRINITY!

As I say to you often 'Oh what a wonderful world this is that has such people in it.'
You are indeed a treasure . . . my heart is always touched by your intuitive responses.
‘Friends across the ocean’ . . . my love and respect in return.

Walter . . .
