St. Cecilia by Guido Reni.jpg

St Cecilia! Patroness of Music! Martyr! Incorporable Body! She was mind numbingly awesome and is a beloved saint and friend.

O glorious saint, who chose to die
Instead of denying your King.
We pray you please to help us
As His fair praise we sing!

We lift our hearts in joyous song
To honor Him this way,
And while we sing, remembering,
To sing is to doubly pray.

At once in our hearts and in our tongues
We offer double prayer
Sent heavenward on winged notes
To praise God dwelling there.

While in our hearts and tongues we try
With song to praise God twice,
We ask dear saint, to help us be
United closed to Christ!


thanks for sharing this. i am sad to say that i often forget about our beautiful saint cecelia.
