To the traveling and working Filipino migrant with a fervent love of God to light the way and spread His word
Far from country so they sail,
What ails the aged and the frail;
Healing both body and soul —
God’s gift, the Filipino.
Kept close to Christ and the pope:
The world’s best workforce, full of hope;
All in Abu Dhabi,
Mass, it’s as if it’s been stilled,
Massive cathedrals once were filled;
But wait, a resurgence:
Pack the Church, Filipino!
Long love for both young and old,
Hearts to heal a hardened household:
Poised, PacMan’s power punch,
Las Vegas, Filipino.
Closet cloistered, folded hands,
A burning bush in salted sands,
Good and gone but your prayer,
Saved my life, Filipino!
