A Jubilee Magnificat

My Magnificat on my Jubilee
By Sr. Gemma Pires, PBVM

Join with me in songs of praise
Bursting forth with words of grace
Thanking God and praising God 
Our faces radiant with His Love

Deep inside of me I sense
the hushed whisper of His Voice
Calling me to walk with Him
in the depths of my soul
Lighting up the darkness there
Awakening and healing me
Lifting me to look with Him
into the Wonder that is mine

You, O Love, have been inside
even where I haven’t been
In the shadows of my fears
weaving rainbows of my dreams
Leading me in ways so strange
to a people all aflame
With a passion for your Word
Hope encircles all our world

You have been a part of me
and the family I belong
The loving gaze of my God
the dance, the rhythm all along
Urging growth, giving life
sharing gift, the reason why
I celebrate with gratitude
the gifts and blessings of my life
