Hold me, Mother Mary, in your warm, gentle embrace.
Hold me, Mother Mary, with your guiding hands.
Hold me, Mother Mary, in your thoughts of kindness.
Hold me, Mother Mary, in your sincere loving prayers.
Hold me, Mother Mary, that I may learn to love like you,
to embrace those who are hurting,
guide those who ask,
hold thoughts of kindness for all
and pray prayers of sincere love to God our Father.
Teach me Mother Mary so that I can love like you.
Strengthen me Mother Mary that I may ponder these things in my heart and have the courage to sit at the foot of the cross and support those on the cross.
Lead me Mother Mary to say yes to the will of God and surrender all in poverty.
Love me Mother Mary that I might love others as you do.
