DEAR JESUS I HAVE LONGED FOR YOU
Dear Jesus, I have longed for You
Since I was very small
Upon my mother's knee I learned
That You were not so tall
She said You were quite wonderful
In each and every way
And if I was a very good child
I'd be with You one day
She said You would be my Best Friend
And stay close by my side
She said You would take care of me
And that You were my Guide
Dear Jesus, on this special day
Please come into my heart
As I receive Your Holy Host
Please never let us part
I'm actually not positive of all the lyrics (other than the first verse) because my memory is so bad, but I think that's how it went. And I wish I knew music because then I could describe the tune, it's a haunting little tune, just the same tune over and over for each verse.
I've tried looking it up on-line but have found nothing. I think one of the Nuns who taught at O.L.B. S. wrote it, and I think it was only used the year that I made my First Holy Communion because my sister made hers the next year and it wasn't sung then.
I think many parents may have complained, I know my Mom was upset at first that we weren't singing "Oh, Lord, I Am Not Worthy", until she had me sing the song, and then she said she liked it very much and thought it was a sweet song for children to sing.
Saturday ~ just food shopping in the morning and shopping for school supplies for Jayden (I waited too long last year and there was not much left on the shelves!) then babysitting Mia in the afternoon and evening (our son and daughter-in-law have a wedding to attend).
Sunday ~ pool party!
Monday ~ Ray is off and I think we'll be going to the beach again!
