God's Love in My Classroom
by Sister Marie Roccapriore, M.P.F.
I SEE Your Love, Lord
I SEE Your Love, Lord,
in the smile on a child’s face,
in this faith formation place.

I HEAR Your Love, Lord,
in the laughter that we share,
in our quiet time at prayer.

I TASTE Your Love, Lord,
in the snacks the children bring,
in the sweetness when they sing.

I FEEL Your Love, Lord,
in the touch of joy You send,
in the strength that doesn’t end.

I HOLD Your Love, Lord,
in the clasp of a child’s hand,
in the circle where we stand.

I WALK Your Love, Lord,
in my steps to reach each one,
in the teachings of Your Son.

I KNOW Your Love, Lord,
in the gifts of children’s love,
in the blessings from above.

I HAVE Your Love, Lord,
in each moment of this day.
In gratitude now I pray:

Praise and thank you, Lord
For Your unceasing Love!
