The Sacred - (By Thomas Balistreri)

Thy Sacred heart,
You freely gave.
By Thy great love,

Your tender care,
and eternal life,
You sacrificed to share.

Guiding My Stride - (By Thomas Balistreri)

A new Day begins.
Before me it lies.
What secrets it holds?
What new surprise?

I follow God's lead,
not cause I must,
but because He guides,
with love and trust.

after the pattern,
You desire for me.
Not my will but Yours,
will truly
make me free.

but truth may be disguised.

No Longer Adrift - (By Thomas Balistreri)

Adrift upon a stormy sea.
This was all life was to me.
Then rescued by God
I was free.
Now I praise Him
endlessly.

A New Day’s Prayer - (By Thomas Balistreri)

Thank you Lord for this day.
And the blessings, You have sent my way.

show me the way.

And guard me in,
the things I say.

Not By Instinct - (By Thomas Balistreri)

Man doesn’t move by instinct
towards the path of life.
But by God’s Holy Spirit
he is guided towards the light.
