Thought for the Month
I Live Alone

A photo a single flower

Stay by my side, O Lord,
For I'm alone.

I need your presence with me
Night and day,
to share my home,
To guide me on my way.

Keep me safe from danger;
Fill my heart with joy.
Give me your peace, your gift
To share with those whose hearts
Are troubled or despair.

And even when the shadow
Of the Cross falls on my path
I see your Easter sunlight
Through the dark.

I live alone, dear Lord,
But I am sure
Your gaze is ever on me
As on an only child.

Abide in me, dear Lord,
That I may live in you.


Benedictine Abbey, Kylemore
