Mother Teresa

Believed in the Lord, devoted life to helping the impoverished.
Set up missionaries of charity to help the hungry, disabled and infirm.
Prevented them dying in streets of Calcutta as were nourished.
Whole life, a fight to save Government's abandoned human germ.

Great woman, walked with God in salvation of remnants of human cruelty.
Drank the spirit of the Lord and became drunk in mad revelry to save.
Danced in corruption of evil world in her fearless battle to ban devilry.
Countless souls cry out in love and admiration as she is truly brave.

Mother Teresa, I sing to thee in praise of saving my children.
My heart burst as the blood of my love spills and tears explode.
Your sainthood is assured as you languor in death grasping God's sermons.
I embrace your disciples in worldwide missionaries that espouse your spiritual ode.
