( I Believe in) The Communion of Saints ( Apostles’ Creed Series)

With this great cloud of witnesses around us, therefore, we too must throw off every encumbrance and the sin that all too readily restricts us, and run with perseverance the race which lies ahead of us, our eyes fixed on Jesus, the Pioneer and Perfecter of our faith.                                 Hebrews 12:1-2  

Communion of Saints, John Nava, 2002 O5H0156

At the rising of the sun and at its setting,

we remember them.

At the warm summer breeze and in the chill of winter,

we remember them.

At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring,

we remember them.

At the blue of open skies and in the heat of summer,

we remember them. 

At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of autumn,

we remember them.

At the beginning of the new year and at its close,


we remember them. 


As long as we live, they too will live; 


for they are now a part of us,

as we remember them. 


When we are weary and in need of strength,


we remember them.


When we are lost and sick at heart,


we remember them.


When we have joys we yearn to share,


we remember them. 


     When we have decisions that are difficult to make, 
we remember them.

                
When we have achievements that are rooted

on theirs,


We remember them. 


As long as we live, they too shall live,


for they are a part of us, as we remember them.
