Chrism Mass Song
Words and music © Noel S Donnelly
You were sent to save the poor,
make them whole with news of hope
Come among us now with healing,
in our weakness make us strong.
Bless us with your oil of gladness.
Seal us with your fragrant balm.
Make us whole. Strengthen our faith.
Anoint us with oil for your service, Lord
– Kings, Priests and Prophets to serve you Lord.
You were sent to those imprisoned,
helpless with the bonds of fear.
Come among us now in freedom,
in our worry make us free.
You were sent to help the blind,
guide for all to see God’s ways,
Come among us now with vision,
in our blindness be our light.
You were sent to help the lame,
slow and wanting in men’s eyes,
Come among us now with power
as we stumble walk with us.
You were sent to feed the hungry,
bread of life to raise us up,
Stay with us throughout life’s journey,
working strongly through the weak
